MEMO TO : THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY
RE : New Editor-in-Chief for Asia Mindanaw
I am happy to announce the appointment of MR GERALD JAMES Y EBAL as Editor-in-Chief of Asia Mindanaw, AdZU’s multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that brings to light Peace and Development issues on Mindanao through scholarly pursuits.
Mr Ebal has been the Managing Editor of Asia Mindanaw (since 2012) and of the Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies (since 2009), a member of the Jesuit Higher Education Commission (JHEC) Committee on Journal Publication (since 2012), and a member of the AdZU Ethics Review Committee (since 2013). He has a master’s degree in Social and Community Psychology from Ateneo de Manila University (2006) and is a certified Social Psychologist recognized by the Psychological Association of the Philippines (PAP).
I thank Mr Ebal for his availability and generosity of service. I also thank DR ROBERT V PANAGUITON for having served as Editor-in-Chief for three years (2014-2017), and DR TERESITA G MONTAÑO for overseeing the journal in her capacity as Director of the Ateneo Research Center (ARC).
With this change in leadership and in line with our new five-year University Strategic Plan, Asia Mindanaw’s purpose, direction and structure will be reviewed. The outcome shall be communicated to the community in the future.
