ABOUT

SciEnggJ [formerly Philippine Science Letters (PSL) ISSN 2094-2818] is a peer-reviewed, online, open access journal that showcases science done in the Philippines and science done by Filipinos elsewhere. Research relevant to the Philippines and the region done by non-Filipinos can also be featured. It publishes Regular Research Articles, Commentaries, and Letters to the Editor on studies in the Natural, Physical, Mathematical, Computational and Social Sciences, including those related to Agriculture, Health, Engineering, Environment, Education and Technology. Solicited Reviews will also be featured. Position Papers, White Papers, Popular Science Articles on science and technology topics, including science policy issues, are welcome. Submission of News Reports of Scientific Meetings or Events is encouraged. From time to time, SciEnggJ will feature Articles on Prominent Filipino Scientists and their work. It will also include brief summaries of newsworthy science articles from other publications.

[Philippine Science Letters transitioned to SciEnggJ on July 1, 2021. SciEnggJ is now recognized as the official journal of the Philippine-American Academy of Science & Engineering or PAASE. (https://paase.org) Note the Letter from the Editors announcing the transition dated June 23, 2021.]

Essentially there is no restriction on the length of Regular Research Articles or Reviews. Commentaries and Letters to the Editor should be limited to 1000 words. Position Papers, Popular Science Articles, Features and News Reports, to 1500 words; and White Papers, to 5000 words. A limited number of figures and tables may be included. Manuscripts that have been accepted for publication will be charged a publication fee of PhP3,000, if paid in the Philippines, or USD100, if paid outside the Philippines.
