JOSIT, (Journal of Science and Information Technology), Tai Solarin University, Ogun State, Nigeria, welcomes well researched scholarly articles on the above theme for consideration of publication in Volume 15, Number 1.
Three types of manuscripts to be submitted:
All manuscripts are reviewed by an editor, members of the Editorial Board or qualified outside reviewers. Authors cannot nominate reviewers, only reviewers randomly selected from our database with specialization in the subject area will be contacted to evaluate manuscripts. The process will be blind reviewed.
Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible and the Journal strives to return reviewers’ comments to authors promptly. The editorial board will re-view manuscripts that are accepted pending revision.
All portions of the manuscript must be typed doubled-spaced and all pages numbered starting from the title page. The Title should be a brief phrase describing the contents of the paper. The title page should include the author’s full names and affiliation, the name of the corresponding author along with phone and E-mail information.
The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, briefly present the topic, state the scope of the experiments, indicate significant data and point out major findings and conclusions. The Abstract should be between 100 and 250 words in length. Complete sentences, active verbs and the third person should be used. The abstract should be written in past tense. Standard nomenclature should be used and abbreviations should be avoided. No literature should be cited.
Following the abstract, about 3 to 10 key words that will provide indexing references should be listed.
The Introduction should provide a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject and the proposed approach or solution. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.
Materials and Methods should be complete enough to allow experiments to be reproduced. However, only truly new procedures should be described in detail; previously published procedures should be cited and important modifications of published procedures should be briefly mentioned.
Results should be presented with clarity and precision. The results should be written in past tense when describing findings in the author’s experiments. Previously published findings should be written in past tense. Results should be explained but largely without referring to the literature, Discussions, speculations and detailed interpretation of data should not be included in the results but in the Discussion section.
The Discussion should interpret the findings in view of the results obtained in this and in past studies on this topic. State the conclusions in a few sentences at the end of the paper. The Results and Discussion sections can include sub-headings and where appropriate, both sections can be combined.
The Acknowledgements of people, grants, funds etc should be brief. Tables and figures should be kept to a maximum of five and be designed to be simple. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes. Each tables should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals and supplied with a heading and a legend. Tables should be self explanatory without references to the texts. The details of the methods used in the experiments should preferably described in the legend instead of the text. The same data should not be presented in both table and graphical form or repeated in the text.
Figure Legends should be typed in numerical order. Graphics should be prepared using applications capable of generating high resolution GIF, TIFF, JPEG or PowerPoint before pasting in the Microsoft Word manuscript file.
Reference: In the text, a reference identified by means of an author’s name should be followed by the date of the reference in parentheses. Where there are more than five authors, only the first author’s name should be mentioned, followed by ‘et al’. In a situation when author cited had two or more works published during the same year, the reference, both in the text and in the reference list, should be identified by a lower-case letter like ‘a’ and ‘b’ after the date to distinguish the works.
References should be listed at the end of the paper in an alphabetical order. The names are to be abbreviated according to Chemical Abstracts and written in italics. Authors are fully responsible for the accuracy of the references.
