In June 1998, the maiden edition of THE POLYMATH came into existence as a collective Journal of the then Ogun State Polytechnic, Abeokuta. It was established in response to challenges of the dearth of publications which was noted as bane of the Nigerian Education System. The situation was then observed to have undermined the roles of academic institutions in the area of promoting research and development. The Polymath journal emerged as a genuine effort to control the spate of whirl and unsavoury roles played by lecture notes, hand-outs and all
sorts of study-materials or substandard textbooks etc in and around the Polytechnic. It therefore, became expedient and inevitable to provide an intellectual platform for presenting well-researched scholarly articles as publication for the purposes of sharing and promoting multidisciplinary knowledge, ideas and practices to address the degenerating
The Journal had four (4) editions published with the fourth (4th) edition in 2013 after a long break due to paucity of fund. Over the years, the Journal had achieved its set-objectives. It has provided window for recording,
presenting and retrieving current trends, innovative ideas and developments from diverse disciplines and practices.
th This edition is the 5 in the series and contains articles from the fields of Social, Business and Management Sciences: “Social Responsibility: An Alternative Marketing Strategy for Business Survival in a Competitive
Environment” and “E-Commerce: A Tool for Economic, Infrastructure and Sustainable Development. In the Communications and General Studies, we have articles on "A Content Analysis of Press Coverage of the Protest
Against Oil Subsidy Removal in Nigeria" and "The Role of Interpersonal Communication in Relationship Building". The Engineering and Technology field provided insight into "Design and Development of an
Automatic Fire-Alarm System with Call Alarm", " Development of Digital Ballot Paper Counter Box based on Decoder ", " Exploiting Renewable Energy Resources: A Viable Solution to Energy Problem in Nigeria ", "
Model Summary and Parameter Estimates of Foot Length, Leg Length and Body-Height Relationship of a Tertiary Institution Student in Abeokuta, Nigeria" and "Quality Assessment of Selected Ground Water Samples in
the Neighbourhood of Typical Dumpsites in Abeokuta". In the area of Environmental Studies the articles include, "An Appraisal of Multi- Stakeholder Approaches in the Provision and Management of Sanitary
Facilities in Irewole Local Government Area of Osun Sate, Nigeria ", "An Evaluation of Property Identification and Land Registration for Sustainable Infrastructural Development in Nigeria " and "Building Collapse in Nigeria: Causes, Effects and Remedies ".
