RECTOR Fr. Tamerlane Lana, O.P. called for researches that can contribute to the generation of knowledge as well as in the development of the society during the UST Research/Creative Works Recognition and International Publication Awards.

“The University should enhance world-class research projects, a dynamic culture for collaboration of research within and outside the University,” Fr. Lana told some 60 Thomasian researchers last March 16 at the Thomas Aquinas Research Center auditorium.

The UST Research Recognition Awards, which started 1997, is held biannually and has three categories: the Gold Series awards, given to tenured full-time faculty members with doctorate or master’s degrees who have research projects and have authored at least three research papers in refereed journals during the last five years; the Silver Series award, given to both tenured and non-tenured faculty members with at least master’s degrees who have on-going research projects and have authored at least one research paper in refereed journals in the last two years; and the UST International Publication award, given to faculty members who had their research papers published in international refereed journals recognized by the International Citation Index Institute of Scientific Information.

Dr. Allan de Guzman, Center for Educational Research and Development CERD director and Gold Series and International Publication award recipient, told the Varsitarian that the event recognizes the contribution of the faculty members in research.

“Faculty members should realize that we should not only excel in teaching but also in the research function of the University,” De Guzman said.

De Guzman also said that the Center for Research and Development plans to compile some of the researches published as its contribution to the quadri-centennial celebration of the University in 2011.
