Brief history

The Mizo Academy of Sciences (MAS) was founded as the Mizo Post-Graduate Science Society in 1995 at Shillong, Meghalaya, and from 1997 is chartered in Aizawl, Mizoram, as a registered non-profit, voluntary, scientific and educational organisation (No. S.R.42/96/MZ-RFS of 1996 of the Mizoram Firms & Societies Registration Act, 2005, under the Indian Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860). It aims to promote and make further development of science for the younger generation. Since 2001 the society publishes a quarterly Science Vision, with financial assistance from the Directorate of Science and Technology, Government of Mizoram.

Science Vision is an interdisciplinary science journal, and is published quarterly in the months of March, June, September, and December. It aims to provide a forum for the reporting and discussion of news and issues concerning science, and to disseminate the information to the public. Though it is the official publication of the society, Sci Vis assumes no responsibility for opinions and conclusions drawn, or accuracy of data therein – including those of editorials, research articles, news, commentaries and reviews – which merely reflect the personal views of the authors and not official points of view of the MIPOGRASS or the institutions/organizations with which the authors are affiliated.
