This is introducing the Caleb Journal of Social and Management Sciences (CJSMS) to the academic community. Its birth was occasioned by the observation that there are not many viable journals around that combine researches carried out in both the social and management sciences. It is an honour for me to serve as the founding editor of what is going a leading journal. The CJSMS is domiciled in the College of Social and Management Sciences of Caleb University, a foremost private University in Nigeria. It is a multidisciplinary journal designed to give voice to researches conducted locally and internationally in the different fields of the social and management sciences. We are very excited about this maiden edition, and seize this opportunity to thank the Vice-Chancellor of the University and Dean, College of Social and Management Sciences of the University for buying into the vision of a journal for the College, as well as extending financial support. This maiden edition has a fair spread of articles, at once bestriding Economics, Mass Communication, Accounting, Political Science and International Relations. With this impressive beginning, and with the quality of the Editorial and Advisory Teams assembled, we are very much convinced that this journal has come to stay as a credible outlet for cutting-edge research produced, not just in Nigeria, but globally. Academics and other interested persons are therefore, invited to embrace this journal and be part of its growth, towards the enrichment of our readers and of society. Once again, welcome to the CJSMS! We promise to maintain the very high standard set in this maiden edition of the Journal.
