Vision

NUML Journal of Critical Inquiry (NUML JCI) aims to connect different paradigms of research while overcoming restrictions that impact freedom and creativity. With the diffused boundaries of research, our journal aspires for a uniqueness to explore untrodden territories. Our journal encourages the researchers to peer deeper into our social, cognitive, and scientific systems than ever before. Novelty in research and dynamic approach in exploring areas of interest have always been a forte of potentially creative researchers, but none has witnessed a riper time before. Our journal seeks to combine human cognition with interactive environment and motivational stimuli in order to bear sufficient impetus to bring forth newer insights into areas of everyday familiarity.
