Focus and Scope

The African Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism (AJEM) (ISSN 116-6495) is a biomedical peer-reviewed journal with international circulation. It publishes Reports of Original Work, preferably briefly described, in the fields of endocrinology, metabolism and related subjects. Reviews are authoritative, evidence-based articles on topical subjects. Submission in this category is generally by invitation; however, unsolicited manuscripts are also welcome. Authors are encouraged to discuss an outline of their idea with the editor-in-chief of AJEM. Other sections that may feature in the journal include:
Clinical Trial: An article concerning a drug evaluation.
Editorial: A brief commentary on subject(s) of interest.
Case Report: A brief individual write-up of interest, especially one of an uncommon presentation.
Cameo: A short report of not more than 800 words; explained by not more than 3 illustrations.
Correspondence: Short contribution, notes or letter to the editors mostly in response to a previously published article in AJEM.

Peer Review Process

Once the editor-in-chief receives an article, he first peruses it to see its suitability for publication. If it is so, he sends the paper to 3 reviewers who are experts in the field and not below the rank of senior lecturer in that field. The reviewers are blinded to the source of the article. If the totality of their comments are not outright rejection, the authors are advised to resubmit with the suggested amendments. It the reviewers’ comments are major, especially involving methodology and concepts, the article is rejected outright and pronounced unworthy of being published in its present form by AJEM, but could be reconsidered in the future if the fundamental issues raised are addressed by the authors.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
