Its purpose is to provide a platform for sharing highly scientific cutting edge research products, allow young scientists (students) to air their works and also reach out to make visible community knowledge and innovations. Engaging communities, hence inclusion of articles in Swahili, in contributing to the journal will cause a paradigm shift in perception of generation of knowledge as communities actively engage in producing, demanding and utilising research products and showcase their innovations.
The community outreach on a continuous plane demystifies scientific research and empower citizens as they increasingly recognise the need and
usefulness of research and understand their role in demanding for relevant
and utilization of research for their wellbeing hence actively participate in the utilization of research products. Young scientists will get a platform to publish abstracts from their research work hence enhance their visibility.
