IFSU holds research training-workshop

Ifugao State University (IFSU) organized a training and workshop on writing research papers for publication in reputable journals through in-house and Zoom video conference, allowing participants to practice what they learned on April 19-22, 2022 at the Multipurpose hall, Admin building, IFSU-Lamut.

Dubbed “REAP” which stands for Reshaping Educators on Academic Publication, the four-day activity recalibrated the faculty members to increase their research and development capability and productivity.

 “In the IFSU Department of Human Resources and Development (DHRD), faculty members identified research publication as one of their needs in terms of learning intervention; hence this output-based mentoring session,” pointed out Dr. Marissa Bulong, Vice President for Research Development, Extension and Training (VPRDET).

Dr. Ferdinand Bulusan, faculty researcher, consultant, and teacher-trainer, served as the resource speaker. His lecture-discussion revolved around the following topics: Choosing high impact journals: requisites, challenges, and techniques; Redtagging predatory journals; Maximizing the use of technology in manuscript: using the reviewer’s lens; Recalibrating the Introduction, Method, Results and Discussion and Conclusion sections; Demystifying master tips in recalibrating manuscripts: using the reviewer’s lens; Polishing the Title, Abstract, and Keywords; Understanding ethics in publication and handling reviewer’s comments; among others.

University President Dr. Eva Marie Codamon-Dugyon thanked Dr. Bulusan for traveling to Ifugao to be onsite in training the faculty members in research publication and for his continuing contribution to the University. Dr. Bulusan also serves as an adjunct faculty member of IFSU graduate school.

“Promotion is dependent on your researches. Quality researches will lead you to awards. Be sure to translate your research to concrete evidence such as publication, promotion, and remuneration,” said Dr. Dugyon as she addressed faculty members who attended said training.

Her remarks came after some faculty researchers at the University received monetary reward for their publication this year
