Welcome to Katsina Journal of Science Management and Technology

This is a multidisciplinary Journal

Message from the Editor in Chief


Katsina Journal of Science, Management and Technology’ (KAJOSMAT) which stands as a positive signal and an inaudible testimony to the fact that the culture of research and publication has gained ground in the Polytechnic. Given its wide ranging coverage and multi-disciplinary nature, it is a platform for the publication of research and scholarly works from the fields of Science, Management, Agriculture, Engineering, Environment and Technology studies.  This therefore provides an avenue for academic and other professional staff to continue to “publish” so as not to “perish” as the adage admonishes. The mission is ‘to provide a veritable platform for intellectual interactions as well a synergy for societal development and industrial growth’.

The editorial board members and the conglomerating colleges have commendably put stupendous efforts and mobilized a lot of energy in making this feat achievable with prodigious content showcased in the present volume. This is especially considering its assemblage of short, but academically rich articles. The vision is to provide a ‘future market place for researchers and scholars alike to display their abilities on a global scale’.

Finally, while appreciating the contributions of both the editorial board and the academic contributors, I wish to rejoice that the journal has come at the best of times; this is considering TETFUND intervention of nearly 100% in the promotion of academic researches and publications. It is hoped that the journal will in not too distant future be accessed globally by the intellectual community by launching it on the web.
