Background/Objectives: The primary objective of this research is to determine the correlation between Social Studies teachers’ research writing capabilities and their attitude towards research. The respondents are Social Studies teachers from Public Tertiary Schools in Zambales. Methods/Statistical analysis: It uses ANOVA and Pearson Correlation to determine the significant difference and relationship of the variables. This two-fold research uses a questionnaire as the main instrument, adopted from two separate studies. Findings: Based on the result of the study, the teachers agreed on their cognitive, affective, and behavioral attitudes towards research. The study also concluded that teachers are highly competent in writing research. When grouped according to years of service, the study found out that there is a significant difference in the responses in terms of their attitude towards research. Perceptions on the attitude of teachers towards research in terms of behavioral and affective when attributed to profile are the same. Ultimately, the attitude toward research of Social Studies teachers does not influence their writing capabilities. Improvements/Applications: The researcher also proposes a prepared plan to further improve the research writing capabilities of Social Studies teachers for advance review and implementation.

We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
