The NIP Journal is called the NIGERIAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS (NJP), at the moment publishes peer reviewed articles from authors in ALL areas of physics, the mathematical sciences and related fields. It is affiliated to the African Journal Online (AJOL) and is published at least twice yearly. Special conference editions are also published. The page charges as well as instructions to authors are as contained in the GUIDE TO AUTHORS.

The NIP is aimed at publishing researched works of scientists thereby assisting in cross fertilization of knowledge. This, it is thought, will invariably lead to the advancement of science and technology, geared towards the economic growth of the nation. The NJP publishes researched articles in ALL areas of physics (Geophysics, Nuclear Science and Technology, Space Physics, Atmospheric Physics, Environmental Physics, Theoretical Physics, Radiation and Medical Physics, Plasma Physics, Energy, Condensed Matter, Electronics etc) the Mathematical Sciences and related discipline. At the moment, it is being considered to have the NJP in specialized fields of physics. This will be realized in the very near future.
