Foreword by Editor-in-Chief
It is with great anticipation, enthusiasm and pride that I invite you to join the Journal of Education, Science, Technology, and Engineering (IJESTE)
— “a new kind of research journal.”
An enormous amount of work has gone into the development of this journal and many and energetic people are associated with this journal and I believe you will see that effort reflected in the various editions of this journal and it will have the significant impact on research happening in Education, Science, Technology, and Engineering.
We are a dynamic journal which continuously works and in progress with technology is actively seeking research papers based on ideas from real world problems and their innovative but feasible solutions benefiting the society and community in terms of structure, goals, and vision for balancing the ecosystem of the whole universe. We remain open to where we are going and how we will get there.
Our vision at IJESTE is crystal clear. It is important to keep in mind that it represents the collective thinking of a group of innovative individuals with whom we got privileges to work and they are the most important assets of this Journal.
Firstly, we want IJESTE to be the pioneered and premiere academic journal in the research community for engagement of scholars. Our mission is to make IJESTE making a distinguished journal, to be different, to be one journal that, with its related website, will be as dynamic as the work going on in our disciplines, a rarity in academic publishing.
Second, we want IJESTE to be a research platform for a new type of conversation about innovation for community engagement and solving the realistic problems
Thirdly, we want IJESTE to lead by defining new standards in which faculty, scholars and research students participate from idea to presentation through distribution.
This is how we want IJESTE to make a difference, not just an ordinary journal for readers but a benchmark for research community.
IJESTE intends to be a forefront leader in facilitating a new kind of discussion about engagement of scholars. So the engagement of scholars is a transformative process and that it is time for transformation in academia, IJESTE will be at the forefront in strengthening relationships between communities and institutions of higher learning and research and the industry.
“Transformation and change” are very important. At same time both these words cause uneasiness among beginners. Our endeavor will be no different. As we dare to be a new kind of scholarly journal, questions will arise about our rigor. IJESTE has answers those questions.
In order to meet standards, IJESTE like all quality academic journals, uses blind peer review with rigorous evaluation criteria fully vetted through an editorial board nominated members.
I feel extremely proud of all our board members and fortunate to be able to draw upon their individual and collective knowledge, talent, judgment, and disciplinary backgrounds to advance engagement scholarship worldwide.
IJESTE is able to communicate with broad audiences on matters of health, education, innovation, leadership, justice, finance, the arts, culture, and more.
IJESTE will be innovative, providing a venue for scholarly works that report on the integration of teaching, service learning, outreach, society and community engagement, and research. Scholars and researcher and community partners will be an integral part of the journal, as they are in this first edition, a role that will expand as together we find imaginative ways to engage each other.
Professor Dr. Avinash Sharma.
