Impact is a publication housed under the Center for Research and Publication, a constituent department under ISAR (Institute for the Study of African Realities).
The themes are as inclusive as the interests and expertise of all those associated with AIU. The name of the journal itself gives guidance to the papers; that is, all matters which can be said to contribute to the transformative nature of scholarship, thereby adding to a body of knowledge and showing academic excellence in the given field.

Your abstract should contain at least your research topic, research questions, participants, methods, results, data analysis, and conclusions. You may also include possible implications of your research and future work you see connected with your findings. Your abstract should be a single paragraph, double-spaced. Your abstract should typically be no more than 250-300 words.
You may also want to list 5-7 keywords from your paper in your abstract, as keywords will help researchers find your work in databases.
