IN MEMORIAM: PROFESSOR OLUWUMI LONGE (1932 – 2020), FIRST NIGERIAN PHD DEGREE HOLDER IN COMPUTER SCIENCE TO BECOME A PROFESSOR OF COMPUTER SCIENCE, TRANSITED TO A HIGHER SPIRITUAL REALM AT THE AGE OF 88.  DETAILED TRIBUTE AND SPECIAL JOURNAL EDITION DEDICATED TO HIM WILL BE PUBLISHED IN THE NEAREST FUTURE.
 
PROFESSOR LONGE WAS AN OUTSTANDING NIGERIAN FIRST GENERATION COMPUTER SCIENTIST AND MANAGER. AMONG OTHERS, HE WAS THE FOUNDING FATHER, PIONEER PROFESSOR AND HEAD, DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SCIENCE, UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN (UI) (NIGERIA’S PREMIER UNIVERSITY). HE WAS ALSO THE FIRST FELLOW AND PRESIDENT OF THE NIGERIA COMPUTER SOCIETY.
 
PROFESSOR OLU LONGE RECEIVED BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (B.SC.) DEGREE IN PHYSICS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF LONDON (THROUGH THE THEN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, IBADAN, NOW UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN) (1959). HE THEREAFTER OBTAINED A MASTER OF SCIENCE (M.SC.) DEGREE IN COMPUTER SCIENCE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (1966) AND A DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY (PHD) DEGREE IN COMPUTER SCIENCE FROM OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY, USA (1974).
 
AS THE FIRST INDIGENOUS/NIGERIAN  DIRECTOR OF THE COMPUTER CENTRE OF UI, PROFESSOR LONGE CONTRIBUTED ENORMOUSLY TO MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM (MIS) IN NIGERIA. THAT WAS THE ERA OF THE (LARGE) MAINFRAME COMPUTERS SUCH AS THE IBM 360/370. HE WAS AN ARROW HEAD IN THE SUCCESSFUL PROCESSING/RUNNING OF COMPUTER PROGRAMS WRITTEN ON PUNCHED CARDS BY STAFF AND STUDENTS OF UI, AS WELL AS OUTSIDERS. SUCH CARDS ARE NORMALLY SUBMITTED TO THE COMPUTER CENTRE FOR PROCESSING IN BATCHES, A PROCESS CALLED BATCH PROCESSING. THIS WAS THE SAME PROCEDURE IN THE FEW OTHER NIGERIAN UNIVERSITY COMPUTER CENTRES IN EXISTENCE.
 
ONE OF THE EARLY UNIVERSITIES HAVING COMPUTER CENTRES INCLUDE UNIVERSITY OF IFE (NOW KNOWN AS OBAFEMI AWOLOWO UNIVERSITY), WHICH IS THE FIRST NIGERIAN UNIVERSITY TO START AN UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAMME IN COMPUTER SCIENCE. OTHER UNIVERSITIES INCLUDE AHMADU BELLO UNIVERSITY, ZARIA, UNIVERSITY OF LAGOS ETC. POPULAR SYSTEMS WHICH WERE GENERALLY DEVELOPED ON THE PLATFORM OF THE MAINFRAME COMPUTER AT THE TIME INCLUDED THE PAYROLL SYSTEM AND THE STOCK CONTROL SYSTEM. SOME OF THE POPULAR COMPUTER PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES AT THE TIME WERE FORTRAN, COBOL, PASCAL, WORDPERFECT, DBASE AND BASIC.
 
IN HIS INAUGURAL LECTURE OF 1983, PROFESSOR LONGE BRILLIANTLY (AND FOR THE FIRST KNOWN TIME IN THE LITERATURE)  ESTABLISHED A LINK BETWEEN THE IFA DIVINATION CORPUS AND COMPUTER SCIENCE, WITH RESPECT TO BINARY ARITHMETIC. HE IS ALSO AUTHOR OF TWO BOOKS ON YORUBA COUNTING SYSTEM. IFA DIVINATION IS A PRIMAL MYTHOLOGICAL SYSTEM OF THE YORUBA PEOPLE OF SOUTH-WESTERN NIGERIA.

African Journal of Management Information System (Afr. J. MIS) came into being after the publication  of the 11th volume (Vol. 11, No. 4, December 2018) of the sister journal, Afr. J. Comp. & ICT, which has been in existence since 2008.
 
Just as with its sister journal, Afr. J. MIS is an open access quarterly journal whose overall goal is to promote rapid socio-economic and technological development of Africa, in particular, and the world, in general. The new journal will serve as a supplement to the earlier journal by, among others, allowing more quality papers to be published within the shortest possible time. Please consider submitting your papers for consideration for publication in the journal.
 
The scope of Afr. J. MIS includes, but is not limited to the following areas: information system, management sciences, information management, information science, information technology, systems science, operations research, telecommunication management, statistical computing, media technology management, educational management, transport management, engineering management, law of MIS, project management, engineering mathematics, construction management etc. Essentially, the journal focuses on themes relating to management, leadership and governance using the instrumentality of information technology (IT). That is, the journal deals with the examination, in all their ramifications, of the traditional 5Ms of (scientific) management as expounded by management theorists such as Peter F. Drucker (1909 – 2005). These Ms are men, material, money, machine and method. It is hoped that the journal will contribute to effective practical management globally.
 
Thus, it is envisaged that the journal will, among others, serve as a platform for sorting out leadership-related challenges confronting Africa in particular. The policy of the journal is similar to that of Afr. J. Comp. & ICT, and is available at https://afrjmis.net/faq. For instance, its Editorial Board is international in outlook and comprises of seasoned scholars in relevant areas. There is no payment of assessment fee by all (potential) authors. The one-time Article Processing Charge is payable after the first around of review, provided a manuscript is adjudged to have a prima facie case. The fee is meant to offset part of the administrative and technical costs incurred in producing the journal. Authors of manuscripts that are rejected at this stage are not required to pay any fee whatsoever. A summary of the review outcome, showing strength and weakness of the manuscript, is sent to all authors after the first round of review.

 

 
The four (4) editions of each year will normally appear in January, April, July and October. Manuscripts are received on a rolling basis (all year) through ‘editor.afrjmis@gmail.com‘ (cc: article.afrjmis@yahoo.com).
