The PSU Research Office has just concluded a Writeshop aimed to engender the creation of more research outputs from within the university. This time, the hope is for this to have a wider reach and coverage.

In his opening remarks, no less than President Jeter S. Sespeñe made clear his expectation of the research practices he wants to see from the Palawan State University.

“Challenge yourselves. Find innovative ways to expand our research agenda,” said the President emphatically.

The PSU’s drive for excellence is riding high especially as the university is in the midst of its yearlong celebrations of its Golden Anniversary. President Sespeñe has been very clear about the need for the school to level up across the board. Through this training, the URO has evidently made a very significant step in support of the President’s vision.

Anchored on the E4RTH agenda, the PSU Research Office is firm in its intention to inspire more progress from the different colleges within the PSU so as to empower the role of PSU as the highest research authority in the province.

In this training, various methods of research writing was imparted to the participants who attended. Among the items discussed was the most advanced tools that may be used when doing research on the internet, in which it has been observed time and again that while it is a vastly rich source of very helpful information to research practitioners from all over the world, it is also a venue where erroneous and misleading information can become a precarious pitfall in the research process.

Not too many internet users know that they have several tools at their disposal, which enable them to check for grammar issues, identify red flags in research sources, view critical analytics and many other very useful enablements. Most of these were discussed in this training, courtesy of the University Research Office.
