A Guide to Nigerian Journals and Institutional Repositories
Worry has been expressed over the reliance on foreign journals which are products of research carried out in and around those societies, when there are so many local journals in and about the country. One of the reasons for this discrepancy is the invisibility of local journals published in Nigeria. Researchers in most cases are only aware of the journals published within their environment or online. Nigeria is a big country with many academic institutions and research institutes that make frequent journal publications. This work “A GUIDE TO NIGERIAN JOURNALS & INSTITUTIONAL REPOSITORIES” is an attempt to promote the use of local journals in Nigeria. The publication has collected all the journal titles with their table of contents published locally within 2017/2018 in the field of Agriculture, Engineering, Arts, Science & technology, biology and life sciences, information science etc.

Leopards of the Magical Dawn: Science and the Cosmological Foundations of Igbo Culture Igbo traditional life is ritual-centric, quite simply, for Igbo culture is primarily and largely a mystical culture, propelled by a deeply primal awareness of the spirituality of life. Igbo culture gravitates towards an ordered universe of interconnection of life. Hence, if ritual is the language of the spirit, the language which speaks to the interconnected whole of life, it is only surmisable that, a culture in continuous adherence to its own rituals is a culture in unbroken communication with its own spirit.

The literature on Yoruba sculpture and sculpture-related problems is extensive, but as yet there is no publication which describes the true range and depth of the art. This bibliography, therefore, is designed not as an exhaustive survey but as an aid to further research. The list has two sections: the first contains sources on the Yoruba, the second, general handbooks and exhibition catalogues. Asterisks in the index mark those works which provide the most detailed, careful, or latest studies of a given subject. Certain kinds of research concern the relationship between Yoruba sculpture and the arts of Nok, Ancient Ife, "Great Benin", Esie, and the traditional sculpture of contemporaneous neighboring peoples. In the interest of brevity however, most references on these other styles have not been included. Much unpublished data has also been excluded; for this kind of material the student is referredto the archives of the Western Region Secretariat (ibadan, Nigeria), the archives in the Nigerian Museum (Lagos), and the IRAN archive (Porto Novo, Dahomey). In addition to commonly known types of wood sculpture — figures, masks, headdresses, staffs, house posts, and doors — Yoruba artists created works in wrought iron, brass, pottery, ivory, beads, leather, and stone. Most of these objects served various cults, each of which has its own repertory of songs, dances, and symbols. The richness and complexity of this sculpture is a function of many interrelated factors: over five million people divided into ethnic sub-groups unified by language; an old and unusual tradition of urbanism; an extensive pantheon of spirits (brisa), at least twelve of which call for sculptural forms recognized across Yoruba land; an elaborate cosmology; a complex social and political organization; a frequent interaction of sculpture, music, and dance; and a well-developed sense of artistic quality. Only recently, however, have scholars begun to communicate the originality of Yoruba artistic thought and the complexity of iconography, and to classify sculpture into styles and schools.₦0.0 Add to cart

Economics is full of surprises. Its foundations might at first glance seem counterintuitive, but they have proved themselves true, again and again in practice. People in countries where citizens and their governments understand economics have higher standards of living and more personal liberty than do people who have the misfortune to live in countries where these principles are ignored or misunderstood. Dr. George Ayittey understands these principles, and Applied Economics for Africa shows exactly how ignoring them has contributed to the struggles Africa faces today. This book demonstrates that the key to Africa’s development lies in building upon “its own indigenous heritage of participatory democracy based upon consensus (under the chiefs), free village markets, and free enterprise.”₦0.0 Add to cart

The present Igbo dictionary is a much revised and expanded version of the Igbo dictionary published by Kay Williamson, Ethiope Press, Benin City in 1972. Professor Williamson died in early January 2005, with it still unpublished. The revision was prepared in the 1970s and 1980s and was typed camera-ready in a manuscript submitted to the same publishers in 1983. The publishers first delayed in responding and then finally admitted they had lost the copy. So only a photocopy of the original typed version exists.₦0.0 Add to cart
In this dissertation, Henry Ibekwe calls into question the silently-held presumption that the Latinization (i.e. the use of Latin alphabets in transcription) of indigenous languages in southeastern Nigeria is both necessary and sufficient for their orthography. The arguments presented herein aim to demonstrate the fact that Latinization has systematically excluded an entire realm of symbols and meanings which facilitate the inter-subjective transfer of ideas; realms that cannot always be navigated by relying upon transcription by way of Latin alphabets. In order to adequately address several of the weaknesses identified in the Latinized scripts, the author argues for an expanded orthography that is more inclusive and representative of the sociofacts, mentifacts and artifacts that are peculiar to southeastern Nigeria.
