Vice-Chancellor of the University of Guyana (UG), Professor Ivelaw Griffith has announced that the institution’s press is in the final stages of printing its first batch of publications before year-end.
Professor Griffith explained that the institution has been able to receive its third and final endorsement to move forward.
“We just received …the last of the three endorsements, the first was from Hilary Beckles attached Vice Chancellor of the University of the West Indies, Professor Neville Ying who is the Executive Director of the Jamaica Diaspora Institute among others… so we are moving in the direction for completion,” he noted.
Last year during the institution’s renaissance programme, the Vice-Chancellor signed an agreement with Chairman of Randle Publishers of Jamaica, Ian Randle, to establish a publishing arm of the university that will print the scholarly works of the faculty and student researchers.
The agreement which took effect on April 1, 2017, will last for an initial three years. Among the publications that will be printed are ‘Transition’, and ‘Journal of Entrepreneurship’, which will be linked to the School of Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation, and a ‘Journal of Diaspora Engagement’.
According to the Vice-Chancellor, the institution is also hoping to publish the life and work of Joseph Oscar Fitzclarence (JOF) Haynes penned by Justice Courtney Abel.
