The Palawan Scientist, the official scientific journal of the Western Philippines University, started out by mainly publishing the research outputs of the university. It then progressed as a regional journal by publishing papers that are related to Palawan and its neighboring provinces. Now, even if it has still retained its name, the journal has a global reach. It currently publishes articles that dealt not only with research studies done in Palawan but also reviews and accepts papers from researchers all over the Philippines and overseas.
