The activity was sponsored by The Lasallian as part of the Student Publication Week activities.

Local scientists and science journal editors converged at the De La Salle University-Manila campus last Friday, March 9, for the 3rd Annual DLSU Science & Technology Conference, tackling the issue on scientific publishing in the Philippines.

The event, hosted by DLSU-Manila together with the National Academy of Science and Technology and the Outstanding Young Scientists, Inc., served as venue to discuss the current state of scientific publishing in the country and to find ways to promote their researches.

Guest speakers were Dr. Flor Lacanilao of UP Marine Science Institute who shared his experience on research publication, and Dr. Fortunato Sevilla III of the UST College of Science who discussed “Publishing Chemistry Research Paper-A Pinoy Experience”.

Others who also gave their insights on scientific publishing were Dr. Milagros Navarro, editor-in-chief of the Matimyas Matematika (Official Journal of the Mathematical Society of the Philippines), Dr. Lourdes Cruz, also of UP-MSI, who talked on “The Philippine Journal of Science Experience”, and Dr. AllenTan of the Psychological Association of the Philippines, who talked about the future of the country’s scientific publications.

The participants noted the various issues in the publication of research journals, including the quality of research, the amount of contributions, and the need for support from organizations both from private and government sectors.

The conference participants sought ways and means to promote local scientific journals.

Parallel sessions were held in the afternoon, during which the conference participants were provided different venues to discuss their respective areas of interest.

Faculty presenters came from the College of Education, the College of Engineering, the College of Computer Studies, the College of Science, and the Physics Department.
