About the Journal

Call for Article Submission

The Nigerian Journal of Materials Science and Engineering (NJMSE) publishes reviews, full-length papers, and short communications recording original research results on, or techniques for studying the relationship between structure, properties, and uses of materials.

The subjects are seen from international and interdisciplinary perspectives covering areas including metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers, composite materials, fibres, electronic materials, alternative energy materials, nanostructured materials, nanocomposites, biological, biomedical materials, etc.

The NJMSE is now firmly established as the leading source of primary communication for scientists investigating the structure and properties of all engineering materials in Nigeria, Africa and the rest of the World.

Our major focus is the use of Materials Science and Engineering principles to solve basic problems peculiar to Africa and the developing world while contributing to knowledge on the global scale.

Author Guidelines

The official language of the journal is English. When writing, do not mix languages, use US English completely or use UK English completely. It is expected that before submission, the manuscript should have been thoroughly reviewed and written in simple clear expression. Manuscript should be typewritten with double-spacing and 2.54 cm or 1 inch margins on all sides with graphics at the end. Manuscripts should be submitted in MS-Word format directly via njmse.msn.ng website. Manuscripts should be arranged in the following order: title page, abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results and discussion, conclusions, acknowledgements, references. Please use APA 7th Edition when preparing your paper.

Peer-Review Policy

All submitted manuscripts are subjected to a peer-review process and galley proofs will be sent to the first or corresponding author where necessary.

Processing Fee

A Processing Fee of N10,000.00 only is payable per article. All submitted articles MUST be accompanied with scanned Bank Tellers or On-line transfer receipt as evidence of payment.

Page Charge

Corresponding Author of accepted article(s) shall be required to pay a sum of N15,000.00 only as page charges after acceptance (or $100.00 USD for processing and acceptance for other countries). The ecopy shall be available online free of charge. However, printed copy(ies) may be requested at extra cost.


Submission of an article for publication implies the transfer of the copyright of the manuscript from the author(s) to the publisher upon acceptance and that the manuscript has not been previously published elsewhere. This is the responsibility of the authors. Accepted papers become the permanent property of the publisher and may not be reproduced by any means without the written consent of the Editor-in-Chief.
