Research is one of the four-fold functions and mandates of state universities like Negros Oriental State University (NOrSU). Based on historical records in NOrSU Bayawan – Sta. Catalina Campus (BSC), there are only a handful of faculty members who have publications in refereed and CHEd-recognized journals. Cognizant of this fact, the Campus Research Office organized a Seminar-Workshop on Writing a Publishable Paper in Peer-Reviewed Journals with Dr. Enrique G. Oracion (Director of Research and Development Center, Silliman University) as lecturer-facilitator. This activity was held at NOrSU BSC Accreditation Room on October 30 and 31, 2019.

Specifically, the aforementioned seminar-workshop aims to provide participants with necessary knowledge about research publication, discuss the parts of a publishable paper (both qualitative and quantitative research), enhance the skills of participants in terms of writing publishable papers, and prepare publishable papers for submission to reputable journals.

The seminar-workshop proceeded with the lecture of Dr. Oracaion which was followed by a workshop wherein participants improved there publishable papers based on the inputs of the lecturer. The participants then presented their papers for comments and further refinement.

The participants in this seminar-workshop were the following: Dr. Albert Albina (Campus Director for Research), Dr. Liza Caballero (Asst. Campus Administrator for Academic Affairs), Dr. Arnel Yurfo (Dean of CAS), Dr. Lucille Himpayan (Asst. Dean of CEd), Ma.
