Good News

After battling with technical problems, we have brought out our Volume 4 Issue 2 (April - Jun 2016) in July and articles are invited for the next issue i.e., Volume 4 Issue 3 (Jul - Sep 2016) which will be published in the month of October.

We are still facing problems in creating new users, so, for the time being, please do send the manuscripts by mail to

We are not being able to upload our previous issues online (Vol 3 Issue 2 to Vol 4 Issue 1) because of the problems we faced. They will be made available online as soon as we are able to.

Thank you very much, and sorry for the inconvenience.

Editorial team, AOCH.
