This fulfills one of their major aims, i.e., dissemination of scientific and technological knowledge and developments for the benefits of the scientific community as well as others such as industries and policy makers through publications. I am confident that this will mutually help all the stakeholders, namely, the members of the BRSI, Taylor & Francis, and the readers.”
