QCU Journals

As a CHED-recognized local university, the Quezon City University (QCU) believes cultivating a research culture and developing and distributing new knowledge is critical to accomplishing its goals of becoming a significant contributor to the broader community. The use and benefits of any research outputs are determined by how widely they are disseminated and published. Thus, QCU is committed to providing its researchers with an effective and efficient platform for sharing their research findings and outputs through the QCU Journals.
