RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE RESEARCHERS


 

  • Observe ethical standards of sound research.
  • Conscious, punctual and adhere to the research timetable
  • Prepare budget proposal subject for approval and follow the usual liquidation procedures.
  • Consult credible persons, inside and outside the college, who can critique their work.
  • Submit themselves for critiquing of general audience (research council, peer and students) in the form of colloquia and take into account the comments that will be raised.

 

RESEARCHER/S’ ELIGIBILITY


 

1. Individual full-time faculty.

However, the college does not deter staff and part-timers to do research. In case a part-timer or a staff wishes to write, he/she shall enjoy the same incentives as that of a full-time faculty under this scheme.

2. Team/group of 3 full-time faculty members headed by a Principal Proponent.

A principal proponent is an experienced researcher with a track record who is considered competent by the group.

 

 

FUNDING


 

It is from this allocation where all operational expenditures of the research office are taken. The institutional research office operational budget includes office supplies and consumables, journal publication, honoraria (colloquists, resource speakers, journal editor, and statistician), in-service trainings expenses, on-going research expenses, and incentives for researchers.

 

BACK

RESEARCH INCENTIVES


 

Any full time faculty member/group of faculty members who seeks to conduct an inquiry in a particular area or interest of specialization of his/her college or department is given a cash incentive. The cash incentive is given after the completed research output has been presented in a colloquium and published in the Research Journal. The researchers’ cash incentive is sourced from the budgetary allocation of the Institutional Research Office.

Merits earned for research work published or presented in local or international forum may be credited to the faculty researcher in the Ranking and Classification for purposes of future appointment, transfer, or promotion.

In cases where a faculty presents to the Institutional Research Office an excerpt from his/her own dissertation or thesis, the faculty will not be entitled to receive any cash incentive. However, he will be given the opportunity to present it in a colloquium and have it published in the DYCIan Research Journal, Philomatheia. It will also be credited to the faculty researcher in the Ranking and Classification for purposes of future appointment, transfer, or promotion.

 

 

TIMETABLE


 

A timetable is set to be used for follow up which hopefully guides the faculty to make on-time submission.

 

 

AWARDS


 

Awards are given by the school through the Research Council to deserving faculty members and students at the end of the school year. The purpose of these awards is to draw attention to excellent work and to promote the research field as a whole.

 

1. Best Research Award

(Dr. Ismael D. Yanga, Jr. Excellence in Research Award)

2. Awards for Students

2.1. Best in Thesis Writing Award

2.2. Best in Oral Presentation Award

 

A panel of awards judges will be appointed before the Forum. For each presentation, the official judges will complete an evaluation form (see appendix). Following the final presentation, all official judges will meet to discuss their evaluations and select the award recipients.

The award winner/s, to be announced following the Colloquium, will receive medals during the school year’s Commencement Exercises.

 

 

RESEARCH ETHICS


 

To facilitate a process which establishes awareness of the highest standards in ethical practice in research and to ensure that all staff and students planning to undertake any research project give consideration to the ethical concerns in undertaking research, the Research Ethics Board (REB) is formed and tasked to protect the integrity of the research process. Members of the board include the Dean and/or the department head, research adviser, and the research director.

In relation to this, evidences of data-gathering output of students have to undergo scrutiny by the dean, department head, and advisers. In support to intellectual property rights and discouraging plagiarism, the website http://smallseotools.com/plagiarism-checker/ is recommended by the CRMPO as a way to detect plagiarism in a submitted manuscript. The website has a database of publications and can be used as a safeguard to avoid plagiarism.
