In 1978, Western Mindanao State University launched the Research Journal (ISSN 0115-6454) as multidisciplinary print journal in order to provide faculty and student researchers an avenue to share their scholarly researches. Western Mindanao State University as publisher envisioned the Research Journal (RJ) to be a safe harbor for researchers, academicians, and professional to explore and publish scholarly information.
Over the past years, WMSU Research Journal remains multidisciplinary with two issues per volume published every year until 2015. In 2016, WMSU Research Journal undergone changes in order to provide better conduit for authors to be cited. Amongst the major changes include the online publication of articles through its newest website, the niche (aims and scope) and the publication frequency, in accordance with the Research and Extension Council (REC) Resolution No. 10, series of 2016. Since then, WMSU RJ publishes one volume of research articles that are related to science, engineering and technology annually.
Our mission is to have WMSU Research Journal indexed in the leading providers of research databases, e-journals, online digital library, and online directory. Currently, WMSU RJ is indexed in Philippine E-journals.
