Preliminary Effect of Centrifugal Force on Germination and Early Growth of Maize (Zea mays L.)
Barka Mshelmbula; Gbenga Akomolafe. 2019. Transactions on Science and Technology - in press, October 2019.
Abstract This study aimed to investigate the effect of centrifugal force on the growth of maize, an important cereal crop in Nigeria. The maize seeds were subjected to centrifugation for three revolutions (1000g, 5000g, and 10000g) for 2, 4 and 6 hours. The seeds were planted and observed for germination and early growth for seven days. Results revealed that seeds treated with 1000g centrifugal force for 4hrs had the highest germination percentage (70%), while 50% of the control seeds germinated at the end of the 7th day. The radicle length in the 10,000g/2hrs treatment was also the highest (24 cm). However, the highest shoot length was observed in the control plants. This showed that though centrifugal force triggered a rapid and higher germination rate in the treated maize plants, it still did not result in higher shoot length in those plants. The experiment should be extended until the yield or maturity stage in order to have more profound observation on this centrifugal force effect on the maize plants. View article

Short Report: Viewable Wildlife Species along Sungai Haji Kuning in Sebatik Island, Sabah
Wing-Shen Lim; Nurliza Binti Hasmat; Andy Russel Mojiol. 2019. Transactions on Science and Technology - in press, December 2019.
Abstract Preliminary assessment was conducted to determine wildlife species that could be sighted along Sungai Haji Kuning in Sebatik Island. Opportunistic sampling was conducted along Sungai Haji Kuning at August 6, 2018, through boat survey. Nine wildlife species were encountered within midstream and downstream regions, in which Long-tailed Macaque was encountered most frequently, followed by Brahminy Kite and the endangered Proboscis Monkey. The near-threatened Oriental Darter, vulnerable Bearded Pig and migratory Chinese Egret were viewable along this river as well. Shannon and Simpson Diversity Indices obtained in present study indicated that this riverine habitat housed rich and evenly-distributed wildlife diversity. Hence, riverine mangrove of Sungai Haji Kuning is important to the survival of both resident and migratory wildlife species, and then high viewing success of proboscis monkey for a long duration further emphasizes its potential for future river-cruising wildlife-watching opportunity.

A Mini Review: Interaction of Graphene Oxide with Wharton’s Jelly Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Abstract Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) hold a great promise for tissue regeneration due to the ease in isolation, expanded capability, high plasticity, wide multi-lineage potential with attractive immunosuppressive properties and transplanted applicability. MSCs therapy relies on a large quantity of stem cells from derivative sources. The study of human Wharton’s Jelly MSCs (hWJMSCs) from umbilical cord matrix has brighten the field of MSCs with the advantage of its availability, ethically free, easily harvested, non-invasive and accessible resources. Biomaterials such as Graphene Oxide (GO) can further enhance the yield of hWJMSCs while sustaining the proliferation potential, multi-potency and phenotype of the cells in vitro with potential applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The purpose of this mini review is to specify the unique properties of hWJMSCs and GO functionalization and the characterizations of hWJMSCs-GO cell-material interactions including morphology, proliferation, differentiation, and phenotype.

Journal's Impact Factor Records
Our Impact Factor (IF) is calculated according to the standard formula published by Clarivate Analytics (previously ISI). Below is an example for calculation of 2016 IF.

A = 6 citations (number of times articles published in 2014 and 2015, cited in 2016).
B = 20 articles (total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015).
A/B = 0.300 (IF for 2016).

IF for subsequent years were calculated using similar method and the value is announced in July of the relevant year. The journal was started in 2014.

NOTE: Raw data used in this calculation can be accessed from the journal’s citation records by Google Scholar

IF for 2018
A = 64 citations
B = 141 articles
IF for 2017 = 0.454
H-Index = 6
= 1
IF for 2017
A = 36 citations
B = 90 articles
IF for 2017 = 0.400
H-Index = 4
= 0
IF for 2016
A = 6 citations
B = 20 articles
IF for 2016 = 0.300
H-Index = 2
= 0
