The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, a leading global institution that has consistently built scientific capacities of developing countries by fostering the growth of advanced studies/research in physical/mathematical sciences has kindly supported the on-line hosting of the Journal of the Nigerian Mathematical Society. This will provide the journal with cost-effective and suitable alternatives to hosting with Elsevier.
Our latest feat was a result of my recent visit to ICTP in June/July 2016 as a Visiting Scientist to the Mathematics section and the unquantifiable effort of Dr. Clement Onime of the Information and Communications Technology Section of ICTP. Our special thanks go to the Director, ICTP, Professor Fernando Quevedo for the endorsement of the Memoranda of Understanding without which we cannot go live on Open Journal System (OJS).
