The African Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism (AJEM) 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-inchief of AJEM.
