Scope of the Journal: The Academy Journal of Science and Engineering (AJSE) publishes articles on well researched theoretical, experimental and analytical papers in all areas of Science, Technology and Engineering. The Journal is committed to the promotion of scholarship and dissemination of knowledge. Therefore, every paper intended for publication in the Journal must show evidence of scholarship and make some definite contribution to knowledge in Science, Technology and Engineering. Short communications, Technical or Design notes and Book reviews are also acceptable for publication.

Publication Schedule The Academy journal of Science and Engineering is published annually

Submission of the Manuscript Manuscripts should be sent to the Editor-in-Chief, Office of the Dean, Faculty of Science, NDA Kaduna. The submission of a manuscript will be taken to imply that the contents are original, and the paper has not been published or submitted elsewhere for publication.

h. Appendices
i. Tables, Diagrams and Graphs
j. Legends to figures (diagrams and graphs)

A summary should be included for lengthy review papers only. This should state clearly and briefly in simple, factual, numbered statements the objective of the study, the methods used, the results obtained and conclusion. Acknowledgement should be brief. Appendices and Notes should be avoided. If at all necessary any appendix or note will be printed at the end of the paper. Footnotes should be avoided completely.

Scientific names: The complete Latin name (genus, species and authority) must be given in full for every organism when first mentioned in the text unless a standard reference is available which can be cited.

Units of Measurement: Measurements must be in SI unit. The minus index (m-1, mm-3) should be used except where the unit is an object. (e.g. “per/tree” not tree-1).

Abbreviations: In general abbreviations should be avoided. Numbers should be given in figures. Dates should follow the sequence day-month-year (e.g. 1 January 1999). The 24-hour clock should be used, e.g. 1315hr.

Mathematics: All Mathematical equations should be carefully written and checked so that a compositor can follow the copy easily. Greek letters, upper-and lower-case letters, superscripts, subscript and vectors should be identified appropriately. Equation numbers should be Arabic numerals enclosed in parentheses on the right-hand margin.

Literature Cited: Harvard text system for references in the text should be used. Irrespective of which of the two conventional methods of referencing adopted, all references cited in the text should be appropriately listed at the end of the article with the surname of author(s), year (date), title of article, name of journal volume and first and last pages of the article referenced e.g. Maron, P (1969): Stratigraphical aspects of the Niger Delta; Nigerian journal of Manning and Geology. Vol 4. pp 1-2. For references to a book, the publishers, the town of publication, and edition (if any) should be supplied.

Tables. Figures, Graphs and Diagrams: Tables should be typed, together with their titles, on separate sheets. Column headings should be brief, with units of measurement in parentheses. Vertical lines should not be used to separate columns. Author(s) should avoid presenting tables that are too large to print across the page. Table width must not exceed 80 characters, including spaces between words, figures and columns. Each table should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. The author(s) should mark in the margin of the text where tables, figures, graphs and diagrams are to be inserted. All tables, figures, graphs and diagrams must be mentioned in the text.

Author(s) should ensure that all figures, etc, whether line drawings or photographs clarify or reduce the length of the text. All diagrams and lettering should be in back (Indian) ink on white drawing paper or tracing paper. Photographs should be provided on glossy black and white prints. If lettering is to be inserted on a print, this should be shown on an extra copy or an over lay, and an unmarked print should be provided for marking by the printer. Figures should not be more than 50% larger than the final printed size (which is more than 13 x 12 cm). Great care should be taken to ensure that all parts (e.g. lettering, scales, shading will reduce satisfactorily). Small illustrations should be grouped to occupy the least space consistently with good appearance. All necessary parts should be trimmed (e.g. borders of photographs) allowing at least 3cm margin on all sides. Graphs should be mounted on stout whit paper, using rubber cement or cow gun. On the back of each figure, the name of the author(s) and the figure number should appear. Figures should be sent flat: do not fold or roll. All figures should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals, using lower case for their subdivision. Legends should be typed on a separate sheet.
