About the Journal
Slongan is the official research journal published by the Research and Publication Office (RPO) of Cor Jesu College. Slongan is a B’laan word for treasure chest where one puts important documents, memorabilia, and other precious items for safekeeping. Like a slongan, the Center considers this publication a fusion of researches in the difference academic disciplines essential to the continuing development of higher education. However, unlike treasures in a slongan, these researches will not be kept but will be disseminated in the most applicable method determined by the center.
The articles published in the journal are peer reviewed. RPO and its network of experts in the region works through a publication process to ensure the readability and replicability of the published research papers. Through the Slongan, RPO commits to its mission of generating knowledge to improve the human condition and facilitate transformative education and development.
