KINĺ! The Comeback of the Journal
By Dr. Doris O. Gascon, CAS Publication Chair
After more than a decade of hiatus, the official publication of CTU-CAS’, KINĺ: An Interdisciplinary Research Journal (with ISSN 16555546), has finally released 600 copies to all CTU campuses and other HEIs in the region. It has been an ardent aspiration of the dean, Dr. Edwin A. Pilapil, to redeem the journal’s publication and circulation. Believing in that goal, the CAS Publication Office had a year to complete the January through December 2015, Volume 8 issue.
Faculty members may have been reluctant to spare some time for the generation of articles; however, a few had still seen the importance of publishing research articles. With the production of the journal, others would somehow be swayed that their scholarly conceptions would be birthed into this printed form.
KINĺ was recognized as a refereed publication as asserted in the BOT resolution no. 318, series of 2003. It is a refereed journal of Cebu Technological University that welcomes interdisciplinary research articles. It draws its contributors mainly from its own pool of CTU academics specializing in language, literature, communication, social sciences, humanities, management, philosophy, human kinetics, pure sciences, mathematics and statistics, using various theoretical perspectives.
The initiative contributes to the development of scholarly exchange between Cebu Technological University and other universities: Cebu Normal University, Visayas State University, University of San Carlos, University of San Jose Recoletos, Southwestern University, University of the Visayas, and University of Cebu.
