December Issue


Dear Readers

We are currently preparing to publish our December issue.

2015 has seen structural changes to JOSI in which we endeavoured to implement additional administration support. We are confident that these changes will be reflected in the quality of papers put forth.

We thank our authors, editors and reviewers for their contributions and dedication to the journal.

Warm Regards
