Dear Author


The International Institute for Science, Technology Research & Development (Nigeria/USA) WAJIAR will have its Vol.2 No. 2 in February 2012. The quality maiden edition was launched at Concord Hotel, Owerri on 14th October 2011 by Prof. M.O. Iwuala, Director of Linkages and Advancement, Federal University of Technology Owerri, Nigeria during the Publish or Perish Workshop. WAJIAR is a reputable International Journal whose key objectives is to promote the publication and diffusion of industrial and academic research outputs that will be of benefit to industrialists and researchers. Articles to be accepted for publication in WAJIAR are empirical research results from the academia and industry which has not previously been submitted to any other journal for publication. Quality Research Results in basic and applied research, Case studies, articles presenting ontology of new knowledge domain and commissioned projects from any field of science, technology and the management sciences are accepted for publication. Criteria for acceptance: it must contribute to solution of local and international problems and must possess qualities of a good paper acceptable for publication in other reputable journals around the world. It must be original research work, contribute to that field’s body of knowledge, and possess technical quality (equations, graphs, tables, test of hypothesis, simulation etc.) with clear presentation and depth of research. Mere Essays are rejected outright. Articles are peer reviewed and accepted papers will attract a page fee of $150 USD or N20,000.00 payable once letter of acceptance is sent to the Author. Good and technical papers are accepted all year round and scheduled for publication in any of the quarterly volumes. The journal is published in February, May, August and December.
