About the Journal

Divine Word International Journal of Management and Humanities is owned and managed by Divine Word College of Laoag.  The journal is concentrated on the issues of business management, education management, ethics, applied theology, Philosophy, and anthropology.

It is an open-access journal that focuses on the latest discussion on business management, education, ethics, theology, sociology, philosophy, and anthropology. It provides a platform for faculty or professors of business management, education, business ethics, anthropology, philosophy, and theology to publish and distribute their noble research findings in those areas.

DWIJMH accepts only original research coming from faculty or professors and graduate students. It does not accommodate research papers coming from undergraduate students and it only accepts field research papers as the output of field investigation. It can accommodate book reviews and literature reviews if the chief editor and managing editor find it necessary.

Review Procedures

All papers will be examined first by the editor in chief and if they fulfill the required research methodology and the content contributes to new knowledge, then they will be immediately submitted to a plagiarism test. If the result of the plagiarism test is below 15% and is fulfilling the requirement of DWIJMH in terms of quality and the paper format, then the paper will be submitted to two peer reviewers. The DWIJMH adopts the blind peer review system in which two reviewers are not known to each other. If the result of the two reviewers is conflicting, then the paper will be submitted to the third reviewer.

The duration of the review is three weeks to a month or more depending on the time and availability of the reviewers. It can be extended to a period of two months. In case the paper is rejected, the author will be informed.  The DWIJMH is published quarterly and the papers are published every 25th of the third month. The submission of the paper is open. The publication dates are every 25th of the third quarter (March, June, September, and December).
