Book launching


The editorial board of the Philippines Communications Society recently had a power-packed grand book launch in Manila. Guest of honor was Commission on Higher Education Commissioner Lilian delas Llagas.

The book, entitled “PCS Review”, serves as a new learning experience as shared by the Philippine's finest minds in media, communications research, and journalism.

Welcoming the guests to this memorable event was University of the Philippine's Lourdes Portus as the book's editor-in-chief and Emelyn Libunao as the issue editor. Distinguished contributors included Jose Reuben Alagaran of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Joyce Arriola of the University of Sto. Tomas, Madeline Quiamco - Asian Institute of Journalism and Communications, Gina Lumauig - Public Relations Society of the Philippines, and Ariel Sebellino of the Philippine Press Institute.

This year's PCS edition highlights the strategic communication in advancing public policy, national development and social transformation. In today's generation, content providers are now broadcasters themselves. The playing field has been leveled as the ordinary Filipino can speak out his mind through the power of social media, giving the power to communicate at the hands of every Juan.

The book is an annual refereed official publication of the PCS, that is a regular member of the Philippine Social Science Council.*
