To promote health research dissemination in the country, the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) showcased the features of HERDIN and explained to more 250 pharmacy students its use during Adamson University’s 6th Pharmacy Research Forum.
Representing the council was Ms. Judy Ann Bacud who explained how the Health Research and Development Information Network (HERDIN) database, the country’s national health research repository, gives its users free access more than 4,000 full-text articles on health research and 50,000 citations and bibliographic health research information.
Two other speakers graced the yearly forum attended by students of Manila universities, Dr. Alberto Amorsolo who discussed the journal peer-review process and the threats of predatory journals, and Mr. Julius Velasquez who gave a presentation on event-based surveillance and response.
To invite HERDIN to visit your university, please send a letter addressed to PCHRD Executive Director, Dr. Jaime C. Montoya about your invitation, and for more information about HERDIN, please visit http://www.herdin.ph/
