The Office of RIE created the Research and Innovation Blog, https://uonresearch.org/blog/, as an avenue for University Faculty to publish insightful articles with a focus on the COVID-19 Pandemic. Although the COVID-19 pandemic is still with us, we are now calling for articles covering ALL topics and subject areas of interest to the public and that leverage on your academic expertise and experience. We especially welcome articles that recast key ideas in academic articles but are presented at the level of the general reader. All articles should be sent as a Word Document to madaragot@uonbi.ac.ke copied to dvcrie@uonbi.ac.ke. All images should be embedded in the document AND also sent as separate attachments.
