Eleven faculty members and four lay administrators were awarded the Research Publication Incentive at the Research and Development Office on August 23, 2019. The Incentive is intended for primary authors and co-authors of research articles successfully accepted for publication in the institutional and other refereed journals.
The awardees were recognized for their co-authorship of articles published the institutional multidisciplinary journal of UNO-R, Virtutis Incunabula (Vol. 4 No. 1 December 2017). They are Glenn P. Salve, Dexter G. Balboa, Fanelia B. Villanueva, and Maria P. Hibaler from the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences; Villaflora Lorca and Ashraf Khater from the College of Engineering; El Jireh P. Bibangco, & Ariane M. Torres from the College of Information Technology; Ruby T. Sumagaysay from the College of Education; and, Araceli Doromal from the Recoletos de Bacolod Graduate School. Meanwhile, Evenizer C. Jardinico III from the Integrated School is the primary author of the research article based on his college thesis.
The lay administrators among the recipients include Sheila P. Arnibal, Dean of the College of Nursing and Allied Health Services; Elmer T. Haro, Dean of the College of Information Technology; and Mona Freda N. Secondes, Director of the RDO who co-authored for her students at the College of Engineering. Dexter Paul D. Dioso, Director of Student Affairs, published his doctoral dissertation as the primary author.
“Research is a fulfilling endeavor, especially once you become part of the research work of the students and see their outputs [published] in Virtutis Incunabula journal,” said Mr. Torres of the CIT. “I am thankful to RDO for this incentive scheme. I hope more faculty members will get involved in research,” he added.
Previously, two other lay administrators, Dr. Dennis Madrigal, Associate Dean of the Recoletos de Bacolod Graduate School, and Ma. Judy Legaspi, Secretary to the President, have availed of the said incentive for their publications outside the University.
The Research Publication Incentive is only one of the components of the RDO Grants and Incentive Schemes available for the UNO-R faculty and employees.
