Message from Editor in Chief

It is a great pleasure to announce that submission to the "SUST Journal of Science and Technology" (SUSTJST) is now totally online. On this occasion, I would like to thank our Vice-Chancellor, Professor Farid Uddin Ahmed, for his continuous assistance and encouragement.

SUST Journal of Science and Technology, a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal, is published biannually. On behalf of the SUSTJST Editorial Team, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the readership of SUSTJST. I take this opportunity to thank our authors, editors, and anonymous reviewers, all of whom have volunteered to contribute to the success of the journal. An enormous amount of work has been done into the development of this journal and I believe, you will see that effort reflected in this edition and in the impact, it will have on the field. It has been an interesting journey in many aspects.

SUSTJST is dedicated to the rapid dissemination of high-quality research papers on how advances in science and technology can help us meet the challenges of the 21st century, and capitalize on the promises ahead. I welcome contributions that can demonstrate near-term practical usefulness, particularly contributions that take a multidisciplinary /convergent approach because many real-world problems are complex in nature.

Peer review is the pillar of a journal’s success and it depends on the quality and inspiration of its reviewers. The performance of the referees is also important to the authors, who have the right to a rapid and fair review. Our Editorial Board carefully selects the reviewer on the basis of their scientific proficiency, scholarly figure, rational integrity, and commitment to the journal.

SUSTJST welcomes original research/review articles in the area of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Soi1 and Forestry, Environmental, Engineering, and Technology. The journal does not wish to receive any paper on research work that has already been reported in parts or any copyrighted material that has been submitted or accepted for publication either in a journal or conference proceedings elsewhere in any form, in print or electronic media. It is the sole responsibility of the author to ensure that all manuscripts are new, 100% original, and unpublished in any form any media or language, shall not infringe upon or violate any kinds of copyrights of others and does not contain any plagiarizes, fraudulent and improperly attributed materials.

Finally, I wish to encourage more contributions from the scientific community to ensure the continued success of the journal. I always welcome comments and suggestions from authors, reviewers, and readers that could improve the quality of the journal.

Thank you. I hope, you will find SUSTJST an informative one.
