This research documented the experiences of faculty members on publication in the main campus of the University of Eastern Philippines (UEP). With the use of a survey schedule and secondary data, the 131 faculty-respondents are experienced, matured individuals and are already honed on the four-fold functions of the university. A common seminar/training attended were on research writing, however, faculty members spent no significant time for reading research journals and reading journals related to Agriculture and its allied disciplines has less priority than those multi-disciplinary journals. However, papers and articles published in ISI-indexed journals, more were published in Agriculture-related journals. Faculty members must be motivated to read research/scientific journals by providing the same in the most accessible areas and the university must set standards for publication of research papers similar to that of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) so that accreditation of this university journal will not be a problem in the future. The same move will ensure publication assistance from the commission.
