Preamble: Namibia Journal for Research Science and Technology (NJRST) is a free, expedited, print and online journal of peer-reviewed research and commentary in pure, applied and allied sciences and technology, and humanities and social sciences published by the National Commission for Research Science and Technology (NCRST).
Sciences: The journal reflects the multidisciplinary nature of the field of science and technology. It addresses the needs of multiple, interlocking communities, including methodologists in mathematics, statistics and econometrics; as well as basic and applied scientists in biology, chemistry, physics, public health, medicine, education, mining, geology, computing, food, agriculture and engineering. The journal will strive to enhance the level of methodological rigour in pure and applied sciences and will contribute to the development of methodological standards in the fields of science and technology in Namibia. In pursuing its main objective, the journal will also provide a meeting ground for researchers from a number of traditional disciplines and will foster the development of scientific research and publication especially among younger practitioners.

The scope in these two broad areas will include, but not limited to, linguistics; literature; history; jurisprudence; philosophy; archaeology; religion; ethics; the history, criticism and theory of the arts; education; sociology; psychology; anthropology; economics; political science; geography; media and information studies; development studies; criminology and African studies
