Melbourne Function Room at Victoria Sports Tower witnessed the kick-off of the Seminar series on Publish or Perish: the Challenges of CHED CMO 15 (s. 2019) by the School of Graduate Studies on April 1, 2023.
The Seminar series is a crucial step towards helping graduate students navigate the new guidelines of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) CMO 15 that lays down the mandatory research publication requirements for the conferment of graduate degrees.
To help students meet the publication requirements, Dr. Jaime G. Ang, Dean of the SGS and con-current head of the Research and Publications Office (RPO), has led selected academics and researchers in four Saturdays of intensive writing for research and publications.
Dr. Ang shared his insights on the importance of publications in building a researcher’s reputation and helping them stay competitive in their respective fields.
Several research trainers are scheduled to work with MLQU’s graduate students, including Dr. Kathryn Tiglao of San Beda College of Alabang, Dr. Lalaine Ocampo of the University of the Philippines in Los Banos, and Prof. Jennifer Lim of St. Scholastica’s College Manila.
The trainers will provide guidance on various aspects of research and publications, including research design, data analysis, and manuscript preparation.
The Seminar series will entitle the graduate students an equivalency unit/CPD units. This recognition provides the students with an edge when applying for promotions or career advancements that require continued professional development.
This event is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to learn from established researchers and equip themselves with the necessary skills to succeed in their academic and professional careers.
