UNITAS, the University’s official scholarly journal for humanities, arts and the social sciences, launched its online home on Thursday at St. Raymund de Peñafort building.

Prof. Maria Luisa Reyes, Unitas editor in chief, said the digital platform would accommodate research papers of great historical value.

“Our archives section is what seems to surprise our scholars. [It is] accessible to readers worldwide [and has been] a goldmine for researchers,” Reyes said.

UST Secretary General Fr. Jesus Miranda Jr., O.P. said the website is a milestone in responding to digital trends.

“What the Unitas wants to do is to regain that prestigious status as a respected humanities journal that it once possessed,” Miranda said.

Joel David, Unitas international editorial board member, talked about his book titled, “Millennial Traversals” — the Philippines’s first open-access single-authored volume.

The journal can be accessed through unitasust.net.

Unitas, published bi-annually by the University, is an international online peer-reviewed journal of advanced research in literature, culture, and society.
