African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development (AJSTID)

Mammo Muchie and Angathevar Baskaran

Harnessing science and technology and fostering innovation has become imperative to address underdevelopment and poverty particularly in the developing world. This is increasingly so in the context of globalised and knowledge economy. AJSTID is a multi-disciplinary and refereed international journal. As there is no journal with special focus on science, technology, and innovation in Africa, AJSTID aims to address this need. AJSTID aims to encourage and foster research publications from scholars working across Africa. While it provides special focus on works related to the nature of science, technology, and innovation process and learning across African countries and other developing countries, it will also encourage submission of works on developed countries. Increasingly process and impact of science, technology, and innovation are viewed at two levels – one, the narrow objective of achieving industrial growth and two, the broader objective of achieving socio-economic development. AJSTID will provide importance to both these bodies of research at various levels: firms, sectors/ industries/clusters, regions and countries.
