The fourth and last issue of the Development Research News (DRN) for 2018 focused on the issues of the Philippine education sector related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, such as open access, innovation, copyright, as well as policies, such as the K to 12 program. The banner article zeroes in on the open access movement in the Philippines in relation to education and research, which was tackled during the fifth biennial meeting of the Socioeconomic Research Portal for the Philippines (SERP-P) Project. Highlights of this event are also featured in the issue. This DRN likewise features articles revisiting the poor innovation capacity of the country's education sector, the hazy copyright policies on works generated using artificial intelligence, as well as on the implementation issues of the K to 12 program. Completing this issue are articles on developed countries' attempt to relabel their development aid as climate relevant and the lack of focus of the official development assistance of Japan and South Korea on gender and women empowerment in the region.
