It is my pleasure to introduce to you, volume 22, No. 1, June 2017 of the Journal of Engineering Research (JER). This edition publishes contributions on advanced drying technology, bimodal transportation, welding technology, recycling of wastes materials and strength of materials. It also includes studies on formalisms, methodologies and simulation tools that are intended to support the new, broader interpretation of geo-informatics engineering, energy performance evaluation and environment.
JER is a referred, peer-reviewed and quarterly published international Journal with focus on basic and applied researches in engineering and its related disciplines. It publishes contributions on concepts, state of the art, all aspects of research, standards, implementations, running experiments, and industrial case studies as well as significant advances in basic and applied engineering, engineering technology and management. The Journal also encourages the submission of critical review articles covering the latest advances in engineering and related fields as well as scientific commentaries.
The Journal has a very dedicated Editorial Board constituted of exceptional academics and practitioners.
Journal of Engineering Research hereby invites you, authors from Nigeria and all over the world to submit original research papers for possible publication.
The manuscripts, which will be judged by qualified reviewers according to established criteria for technical merit, should represent completed original work embodying the results of extensive field, plant, laboratory or theoretical investigation, or new interpretations of existing problems.
Materials must be considered to have significant permanent value. In addition to technical acceptability, material should be presented clearly and concisely. Of particular importance is the description of the experimental procedures involved in the experiment (where applicable). It is very important that critical information about experimental conditions be included so that the work can be verified by other scientists and engineers.
More information about the JER guidelines for preparing and submitting papers may be obtained from: http://www.jer.unilag.edu . JER invites contributions from the entire international research community. The journal will continue to deliver up-to-date research to a wide range of engineering, engineering science, engineering technology and engineering management. The JER will assure that rap turnaround and publication of manuscripts will occur within two to four months after submission. It is our hope that this fine collection of articles will be a valuable resource for JER readers and will stimulate further research.
