This is both an exciting and a challenging point in history for taking up editorship of the multidisciplinary Journal, recognized as Sabaragamuwa University Journal. We are living through a new era of accountability in the research, and the journal serves to publish wide variety of research publications of both local as well as foreign researchers.
First article brings the reader towards to the classical literature, the paper based on Ru Freeman’s A Disobedient Girl. Current issue provides the platform to publish research work on Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) in Sri Lanka. The article strengthen with current research evidence and will cater the demands of researchers engaged in CKD. Further, Journal provides the space to publish the research on biotechnology, and the article address the issue of seed treatments to increase germinability of Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum). Final paper focuses on policy issues and the paper addresses the government SME programmes.
Sabaragamuwa University Journal with its multidisciplinary nature cater the demands of wider audience as well as the forum to publish the research work of diverse group of researchers. I would like to express my deepest appreciation to all those who provided me the possibility to complete this issue. Special thanks goes to Mr. Prasad C. Iddamalgoda for his generous support on preparation of final layout of the journal and the facilitation of Center for the Research and Knowledge Dissemination (CRKD).
