Is JBLFMU ready to produce more impactful maritime research worthy of publication in Scopus-indexed journals?


The John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University (JBLFMU) is making significant strides in enhancing its research capabilities and international recognition. The recent seminar-workshop on Achieving Excellence in Scientific Journal Publishing on Scopus Indexing and Other Indexing Application Processes, hosted by JBLFMU, demonstrates the institution’s commitment to producing high-impact maritime research worthy of publication in Scopus-indexed journals.

The event, held at the JBLFMU-Arevalo campus, was a collaborative effort involving key individuals such as Dr. Melchor M. Magramo, Director for Research and Extension; Unit Research Coordinators, Dr. Emeliza T. Estimo of JBLCF-Bacolod, Dr. Rolando A. Alimen of JBLFMU-Molo, and Dr. Brian Gil S. Sarinas of JBLFMU-Arevalo; and Mrs. Leonora Lucia G. Saul, Integrated Management Representative.

The event would not have been a success if not for the support and inspiration of Dr. Ma. Elena J. Eleperia, Academic Director; Engr. Archie P. Amparo, IT Director; Unit Administrators, Mr. Robert O. Parcia, Engr. Roberto Neal S. Sobrejuanite, and Capt. Alfred D. Espinosa; and the university’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ronald Raymond L. Sebastian. The presence of an esteemed resource speaker like Prof. Don Eliseo Lucero-Prisno III further enriched the event, providing valuable insights and inspiration to the participants.

Overall, JBLFMU’s proactive approach to research and internationalization, as well as its commitment to excellence in scientific journal publishing, positions the university as a key player in the field of maritime research and education. The institution’s collaborative and multidisciplinary efforts bode well for the future production of impactful research worthy of publication in prestigious, Scopus-indexed journals.
