History of IJPS
The journal made its debut in 2008 through the initiative of Professor Dominique Fischer in establishing a journal that publishes research works in the area of property. The current Editorial Board would very much like to extend our appreciation for his work and hope that this initiative can be continued through the publication of more research work from scholars locally and internationally.
