THE UNIVERSITY launched an online platform for independent UST academic journals at the Buenaventura Garcia Paredes, O.P. building last Dec. 6.

UST Secretary General Fr. Jesus Miranda Jr., O.P., said the portal is freely accessible to everyone as part of the University’s mission to disseminate scholarly wisdom.

“The journals included in the portal existed beforehand. We are intensifying their online presence to disseminate knowledge about them globally,” Miranda told the Varsitarian.

“Whether you are a professor or a student, these websites from different disciplines and research centers are available,” he added.

Miranda, chairman of the UST Journal Affairs Committee, was tasked by UST Rector Fr. Herminio Dagohoy, O.P. to come up with a project that would “level up the online presence” of the journals.

The journals in the platform include Acta Manilana of the Research Center for the Natural Sciences, Antoninus Journal of the Graduate School, Asian Journal of English Language Studies of the English Department, Hasaan of the Filipino Department, Journal of Medicine University of Santo Tomas of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, Journal of Social Health of Research Center for Social Sciences and Education, Kritike: An Online Journal of Philosophy of the Philosophy Department, Philipiniana Sacra of the Ecclesiastical Faculties, Philippine Journal of Allied Health Sciences of the College of Rehabilitation Sciences, Tomas of the Creative Writing Center and Unitas of the Literature Department.

The chief editors of the journals were Prof. Emeritus Fortunato Sevilla, Prof. Rey Donne Papa, Asst. Prof. Veronico Tarrayo, Prof. Imelda de Castro, Assoc. Prof. Zendel Rosario Taruc, Prof. Raymond Rosales, Asst. Prof. Maria Carinnes Alejandria-Gonzales, Prof. Paolo Bolaños, Ivan Neil Gomez, Assoc. Prof. Ralph Galan and Prof. Maria Luisa Torres Reyes.
