Written by LVRamirez   

JST CoverThe Journal of Society & Technology (JST), refereed scientific publication of the Naval State University, was recently accredited as Category A-2 journal by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). Through Resolution No. 146-2015, the CHED Management Committee and Commission En Banc in a joint meeting last 30 March 2015 approved six (6) journals as Category A-2 (International) and 14 journals as Category B (National). The result was released by CHED about six months after its deadline for submission of journal accreditation last October 31, 2014.

NSU’s JST was one of the Category A-accredited journals effective immediately until CY 2017 together with ACTA Manilana and KRITIKE of the University of Santo Tomas, The Philippine Scientist of University of San Carlos, SSDU Multidisciplinary Research Journal of Surigao del Sur State University, and UV Journal of Research of the University of the Visayas.

As stipulated in the CMO No.5 s. 2012 (Revised Guidelines for CHED Accreditation of Research Journals and Providing Incentives Therefor), Category A journal publishers are entitled to CHED Journal Accreditation Award amounting to P200,000 per year during the effectivity of accreditation. In addition, for the faculty members evaluated in compliance to publication requirements per CHED CMOs, their publication in the Category A journals is credited as an international level publication. CHED will also endorse the Category A journals for library subscription by the higher educational institutions across the country.

As per CMO No. 5 s. 2012, the journals were accredited based on the following criteria: composition and qualification of the editorial board; recruitment and qualification of the peer reviewers/external referees; type of refereeing system adopted; and overall appearance, timeliness and regularity of the journal. For a journal to get accredited, its evaluation rating should be at least 70% (for Category B) and at least 85% (for Category A). All Category A journals are subject for re-accreditation every after 3 years. Journals accredited under Category B shall only be given until December 2015 to qualify under Category A. Category B journals shall be eventually phased-out.

The accreditation of NSU’s JST under Category A is indicative of the quality articles published and rigorous system of peer review. As such, researchers from different parts of the world are invited to publish at JST.
