DLSU is the lone PHL private university in THE Emerging Economies Rankings

De La Salle University is among the top global institutions in the Times Higher Education Emerging Economies University Rankings 2020. DLSU is in the 351-400 bracket, and is for the second year, the lone private university from the Philippines to make it into these rankings.
The emerging economies rankings include colleges and universities in countries identified by the London Stock Exchange’s FTSE Group as “advanced emerging”, “secondary emerging”, or “frontier.”
Only 533 institutions from 47 countries met the criteria to be included in the rankings.
The rankings apply the same research-intensive indicators as the THE World University Rankings to evaluate institutions on their teaching, research, knowledge transfer, and international outlook, but are recalibrated to reflect the development priorities of universities in emerging economies.
DLSU is also ranked in other THE 2020 rankings. It is the country’s top-ranked institution in the THE Engineering and Technology and Physical Sciences Subject Rankings.
In THE’s Social Sciences Subject Rankings, the University is the only private university among the ASEAN higher education institutions that qualified to be in the list.
The Times Higher Education lists the world’s best research universities, requiring a minimum threshold of Scopus publications, combined with data on teaching, innovation, international outlook, and reputation.

University Fellow marks 200th Scopus article


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.
