Four SEAFDEC/AQD senior staff were among the resource persons during the National Fisheries Research and Development Institute’s (NFRDI) training on “Research methodology and technical writing.” NFRDI organized this course to enhance the skills of its researchers in the preparation and analysis of technical papers or reports.
SEAFDEC/AQD scientist Dr. Ma. Rowena Eguia talked about the research and development process, writing of research proposals, and technical writing for publication in peer-reviewed international scientific journals. There were also lectures on research designs for social science and biological science discussed by AQD associate scientist Dr. Nerissa Salayo and scientist Dr. Fe Dolores Estepa, respectively. SEAFDEC/AQD Library officer-in-charge Mr. Stephen Alayon also taught the participants how to search for scientific literatures and patents relevant to their research.
In addition to the lectures, the participants also had exercises in writing research proposals and technical writing which were then critiqued by the resource persons.
The training was held at La Breza Hotel, Quezon City, Philippines from 8 to 12 September.
