While working in line with the aim of the journal in publishing well-researched, empirical, technical and theoretical papers on issues related to the environment, development and sustainability, authors are freely given the opportunity to share their views with others as long as such views contributes and corroborates with current global research interests. However, the views shared with and in published manuscripts remain the original works of the author(s) and not that of the Journal or the Editorial Board in any way. In order to ensure quality production of authors’ articles in this journal, assurance is hereby given that all manuscripts received must have been subjected to double blinded reviews. Essentially, the journal therefore seeks to bridge, integrate, disseminate and promote intellectual, methodological and philosophical approaches to developing scholarship across the outlined disciplines. We also encourage fresh or current and up to-date empirical researches from diverse backgrounds. In order to improve the quality of author’s manuscripts, the journal editorial team exceptionally welcomes single authorship of articles, but where the need arises for double and multiple authorship, respective authors are expected to do thorough editorial work on their manuscripts with a view to reducing the work of reviewers, before submission.

PUBLICATION TIME LINE/FREQUENCY
In view of the increasing quest for academic growth and career demand, the editorial board of the CJES has considered the interest of prospective publishers to regularize its publication MONTHLY, especially now that the journal has now been innovated, both online and print pattern. While the online version takes one month to be published after submission and payment thereof, the print version is expected to be published within the shortest possible time, to grant opportunity to co-publishers to assess the journal. It also assures publishers that as soon as their papers are sent in, irrespective of the number, they are immediately sent for review and published within a month interval. This innovation which takes effect from 1st January 2021 undergoes expert scrutiny and a review process within two to three weeks. However, the review of manuscript, cost of publication and criteria of manuscript review may be changed from time to time, assuring that all prospective authors must be communicated on any meaningful change when the need arise.
