T. EditorAs I have transitioned into the editorship of UNIZIK Journal of Engineering and Applied sciences (UJEAS), I have come to appreciate anew the ways in which the journal has contributed vibrantly to the study of engineering and applied sciences. It is, as per our editorial policy, “dedicated to publishing original and innovative scholarly research works.
The journal will continue to publish papers reflective of our editorial policy; in particular, in the upcoming year, we will foster critique scholarship in our publications.
I am grateful for the journal’s exceptional legacy of leadership. My predecessor made several significant changes, including those to the editorial team and the journal’s cover and present format. I want to thank him for his continued service and knowledge, as well, his gracious guidance during the editorial transition.
I also wish to express my gratitude to the UJEAS editorial committee. They are providing consistent support and advocacy in the operation/management of the journal.

Best Regards
