In his abstract published on Research Gate, Alfonso introduces Project Saysay as "one of the champions of Philippine public history in the time of social media." The paper also "explores the endless possibilities of repurposing historical materials online and in print for the benefit of the public." The author underscored the fact that "Filipinos are audio-visual people" which is the heart of each and every effort of Project Saysay.

Alfonso also acknowledged his article as a semi-institutional history of Project Saysay. One may read the article here.
