MEMORANDUM TO:     UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY
FROM: LOURDESITA S. CHAN, CHAIR, UNIVERSITY RESEARCH COUNCIL (URC)
RE: Tracking of Published Faculty

On March 7, 2014 (Friday), during the activity hour, the Ateneo de Davao University, through its University Council, shall hold the 2nd RECOGNITION CEREMONIES for UNIVERSITY RESEARCH and PUBLICATIONS.

Among those to be honored are the Faculty Members (full-time and part-time) who published any research-based article or book from the period June 25, 2012 until the present. The published material need NOT be based on a research project funded by the University, NOR have gone through the University Publications Office. [A research-based paper presented at some Conference but eventually published as part of the Conference Proceedings . . . certainly qualifies.]

Concerned faculty members who are in the abovementioned category are asked to submit the following,

– the name of the Faculty member
– the title of the published article, paper, book, monograph
– the publication data [for articles: the journal, the date; for books: publisher, place of publication, year]
– [for articles in journals: an additional indication of the kind of journal for special recognition/award is to be given those who published at refereed journals put out by reputable universities and colleges and those at ISI-, TRI-, and IBJ-levels] Please note though that the granting of monetary incentives shall be governed by the GUIDELINES FOR JOURNAL PUBLICATION MONETARY INCENTIVES and off-hand this is an incentive available solely for full-time faculty members.

Furthermore, those faculty members who actually published before June 25, 2012 but who were not included in the First Recognition Ceremonies (simply because no one knew) may likewise submit.

Please send the data to your respective Assistant Dean/ Dean on or before February 17, 2014, so that the needed plaques of appreciation and monetary incentives (if applicable) can be prepared in time for the March 7, 2014 ceremonies.
