On behalf of the editorial board, it is with great pleasure that I present the Machakos University Journal of Science and Technology to the academic, scholarly, professional, and research community globally. This Journal provides a reputable academic platform and opportunities for researchers and academicians to share and publish quality research papers.
The manuscripts have undergone a rigorous peer-review process. The quality of the Journal is further enhanced by a rich editorial board, which comprises highly qualified scholars drawn from various disciplines. The Journal focuses on multidisciplinary themes and areas of research and is published in both print and online forms.
Despite the global expansion of postgraduate programs and scientific research, research findings are not fully disseminated to people and other stakeholders due to rigid and bureaucratic publication procedures. In addition, there are also a lot of problems that demoralize researchers; exorbitant fees and delays on publication dates. Machakos University Journal of Science and Technology provides unique opportunities to researchers, academicians, and professionals by minimizing such publication bottlenecks.
The efforts, commitment and dedication by members of the editorial board towards the publication of this first issue of the Machakos University Journal of Science and Technology journal is acknowledged.
