Some Problems with the Pakistaniaat Website

I just wanted let you all know that we recently have had some problems with the Pakistaniaat website and, due to some technical problems, have lost some of our data.

As of now, we have been able to restore most of the content but some of the submissions that we were working on have “vanished” from our servers, so we will need your help in adding those submissions to the editorial pipeline. I will be reaching out to individual authors and editors to see if they can share the most recent files with me.

You may also notice that the Journal’s “Current Issue” link is not resolving to the current issue. For now, you can access the current issue through the Archives link or directly from this LINK.

I apologize for this disruption and inconvenience, but please bear in mind that I run Pakistaniaat without any institutional financial or technical support. So, most of the times for updates and other technical stuff we rely on the goodwill and work of our hosting company, who are usually very generous with their help. This time, however, they simply could not update the site to the new version of Open Journal Systems.

We are hoping to soon move all our content to the UNT hosting system. When that happens, I hope we will not have to deal with such issues. Until then, please stay with us and feel free to point out out if you see anything missing from our published issues.

Please also feel free to offer us your help if you have any adavcned skills in programming etc.

Thank you so much!!
