University Fellow marks 200th Scopus article

dr-ragasa

University Fellow and Chemistry Department Full Professor Dr. Consolation Yasaña Ragasa recently published her 200th Scopus-indexed, abstracted article. Of the 200 articles, 137 were penned between the period of 2014-2016–one of the most productive for any scientist based in the Philippines. This surge in productivity also coincides with her appointment as a pioneer faculty member of De La Salle University’s Science and Technology Complex.

Dr. Ragasa has published extensively in natural products, phytochemistry and pharmacognosy journals with her research focusing on the isolation and structure elucidation of the chemical constituents of Philippine plants.

She is the second faculty member from De La Salle University to earn this record. Last year, Vice Chancellor for Research Dr. Raymond Girard Tan of the Chemical Engineering Department reached the 200th mark.

Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.
