Moreover, the session embarked on the topic “Strengthening the Research Rationale and Research Methodology” through the presentation and lecture of the KABADANG Junior Mentor, Mr. Luther Castillo. Mr. Castillo, also delved into the basics of Research Publication Rationale strategies and best practices, incorporating the fundamentals of the rigorous publication process.
