PEJ Wall: Updates on the Philippine E-Journals

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) encourages publishers and editors of CHED-accredited research journals to collaborate with the Philippine E-Journals (PEJ) in making the research works of Filipino scholars globally accessible.1

CHED Chair Dr. Patricia Licuanan issued a memorandum that highlights the benefits and range of free services the publishers would get from joining PEJ.

Meanwhile, the Philippine Association of Institutions for Research (PAIR) and PEJ recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement that will make way for concerted efforts to advance the quality of Filipino research publications, give recognition to researchers who actively conduct research and publish their works, train educators and researchers on the use of the PEJ platform, and “implement the celebration of 2012 as year of the Philippine E-Journals.”

PAIR has a membership of over 50 higher education institutions committed to upholding the quality of multidisciplinary research in the country. With PAIR President Dr. Genaro Japos in the lead, the organization “operates to provide member-institutions with mechanisms that strengthen research capability.”

The year 2011 has been a good one for PEJ. With more than 2,600 articles published online to date, the PEJ collection continues to grow as more institutions and organizations participate in the online journal initiative of C&E Publishing, Inc. Keeping true to its mission to promote research publication in the Philippines, PEJ was given the Asian Research Journal Consortium Diamond Award during the Asian Conference on Academic Journals and Higher Education Research held on August 17-20 in Cagayan de Oro City.

PEJ Acquisitions Officer Mia Monica Santos also received several recognitions from research organizations: Asian Research Advocacy Award from PAIR; Award of Distinction – Training on International Accreditation of Academic Journals, International Association of Multi-Disciplinary Research (IAMURE); and International Quality Award, PAIR.

PEJ currently houses 68 journals of 51 different disciplines from 25 higher education institutions and professional organizations from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. It has reached 97 countries worldwide and garnered more than 400,000 pages views this year.

  • Improve the online visibility and readership of the Philippines’ academic journals especially the CHED-accredited journals in the worldwide research community; and
  • Promote electronic publishing as an alternative, cost-efficient method of supporting and promoting scholarly publications done by Filipinos.

CHED and C&E collaborate to promote responsible research publication through PEJ

CHED and C&E collaborate to promote responsible research publication through PEJ

In an effort to foster a culture of responsible research publication in the country, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and C&E Publishing, Inc. have set out to work together in disseminating relevant resources to researchers and publishers through the Philippine E-Journals (PEJ) website (www.ejournals.ph).

The collaboration between the two educational institutions was forged to address the following issues related to scholarly journal publication: quality of research outputs, visibility of journals, and access of publishers to pertinent information on academic publishing.

As a first step, CHED will release an advisory to the publishers of journals accredited in their Journal Accreditation System (JAS) and encourage them to join PEJ. C&E, in turn, will encourage their existing contributors to submit their journals for accreditation. “JAS is a mechanism through which a national standard for peer review and journal refereeing system can be implemented uniformly for all research journals published by the Philippine Higher Education Institutions,” according to a 2009 CHED Memorandum. Therefore, JAS-accredited journals have been evaluated by the commission to comply with this national standard.

When these journals become available online, they can serve as examples of good academic publication practice and inspire other publishers to do the same. In addition, being online will give the journals more opportunity of being read and appreciated both locally and abroad.

CHED will make available on the PEJ site memorandums and circulars pertaining to journal publication for easy access of the stakeholders. The commission can take advantage of the large network of PEJ to disseminate such and similar other information on academic publishing among the members of the local research community.

C&E, meanwhile, will provide information for publishers and researchers about the different international indexing and abstracting initiatives, e.g. Thomson Reuters (formerly ISI) and Scopus, to educate them on how their journals can qualify for these services. Articles that will guide publishers through the different aspects of journal publication will also be made available on the PEJ web site.

C&E’s Educational Technology (EdTech) Division turns 2 this April!

Born as an important precursor to C&E’s thrust to actively participate in an emerging industry of information and communications technology (ICT) in education in 2009, the Educational Technology (EdTech) Division has a lot to celebrate on its second year.

The series of exponential advancement in ICT in the past two decades prompted educators and innovators to begin finding ways and thereby formulating best practices to effectively utilize modern technologies to better the teaching and learning experiences of teachers and students.

Now more than ever, when a people’s proficiency to use ICT effectively in the home, businesses, and government is quickly becoming the measure of a nation being globally competitive and economically capable, our ICT readiness or “e-readiness” must never be on the back burner. The good thing is that our government has started to make an effort to catch up and is now getting on the bandwagon through its ICT4E strategic plan dubbed as 21st Century Education for All Filipinos, Anytime, Anywhere. Ultimately, the project is aimed at bringing about an ICT-enabled education system that will equip the Filipino student with the 21st century skills necessary for his/her global relevance and competitiveness. Sadly, though, we are
still lagging way behind the e-learning race. And one could easily point to a long list of reasons as to why this is the case—lack of funding, non-existent to poor infrastructure, zero to little initiative from education stakeholders, and so on—unfortunately.

But C&E decided it would not add the long list of excuses. The EdTech Division is the company’s response to the insistent coming of the digital era in education. Committed to provide the best quality, cost-efficient, and cutting-edge educational materials, C&E tasked the EdTech Division to lead in the local development of globally competitive e-learning products and
the initiation of various digitization projects.

Filipino Classics E-Lessons. The Filipino Classics E-Lessons, the FIRST of their kind in the Philippines, are full-length interactive versions of four of the most popular and historically significant novels in Philippine literature—Ibong Adarna, Florante at Laura, Noli Me Tangere, and El Filibusterismo. These multimedia presentations of beloved Filipino epic tales engage students in active learning experiences through the use of illustrations, audio, text, and animations and simultaneously aid teachers in delivering fun and fruitful lessons through useful navigation and annotation tools and features.

Philippine E-Journals. The Philippine E-Journals or PEJ is an expanding collection of academic journals that are made accessible globally through a single Web-based platform. This project, together with participating higher education institutions and professional organizations, aims to promote the research works done by Filipino scholars; improve the online visibility and readership of the Philippines’ academic journals in the worldwide research community; and offer electronic publishing as an alternative, cost-efficient method of supporting and promoting scholarly publications done by Filipinos. Visit PEJ at www.ejournals.ph and browse the site’s over 50 published journals in disciplines as varied as social sciences, history, arts and humanities, communication, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, education, law, business, economics, cultural studies, Filipino studies, computing and engineering, research, medicine and nursing, health sciences, biodiversity, and veterinary and animal sciences among others.

CE-Learning Website. The CE-Learning Website is the online portal to C&E’s pool of e-learning resources and products including E-Lessons, multimedia presentations of curriculum-aligned instructional materials; E-Quizzes, ready-to-use interactive exercise sets that provide immediate feedback to students and serve as time-saving tools for teachers; Supplementary CDs, interactive presentations of lessons and exercises that complement the content of the counterpart textbooks or workbooks; and the yTeach E-Learning System, a content management system that provides high-quality educational materials in secondary Math and Science.

The website also presents students and teachers with loads of free resources. There are articles on education and educational technology for everyone, tips for students on how to improve their study habits, support for parents in actively participating in their child’s education, great teaching ideas in the classroom and learning opportunities at home, and many others. Get hold of CE-Learning’s educational resources through www.celearning.ph.

Happy birthday and keep up the great work, EdTech!
