The Journal of Applied Sciences and Arts (JASA) seeks scholarly contributions to inform the practical application of the Sciences and Arts in solving complex societal problems in the areas listed above and more. We make the distinction between basic research and applied research by following the use-driven research paradigm advanced by Donald Stokes in Pasteur's Quadrant: Basic Science and Technological Innovation: a model of research done carefully, i.e., good science, but motivated by specific practical needs, hence referred to as need-driven or use-driven, including.

  • Data-driven studies:
    Quantitative or qualitative emphasis and authors should indicate the appropriate domain.
  • Reviews:
    Literature reviews illuminating new relationships and understanding, meta-analysis, analytical and integrated reviews, etc..
  • Case studies:
    Intense analyses of a specific situation or problem that led to a solution.
  • Invited Comments and Essays:
    Comments about previously published manuscripts or discussion of a topic not tied to a previously published manuscript.

The Journal of Applied Sciences and Arts (JASA) supports a liberal arts-based professional education through experiential learning to empower graduates to be exemplary citizens and leaders in today and tomorrow’s global, digital wider world.
