Focus and Scope

The African Journal of Food, Agriculture, Nutrition and Development (AJFAND) is a peer reviewed scholarly journal. The journal is envisaged to enable dissemination and sharing of food and nutrition information issues on the continent. It taps social science, biochemical, food and nutrition related research and information. It also addresses issues related to agriculture, food security, and nutrition that affect Africa’s development and people’s livelihoods. It targets and is intended to serve the research and intellectual community; African and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs); African and development oriented bilateral and multilateral agencies; and African public institutions working towards solving food and nutrition problems through sound policies, and addressing issues that affect the African continent. AJFAND is open to both African and non-African contributors. Besides academic research, the journal provides an avenue for sharing information on national-level food and nutrition programs. QUALITY remains the driver of our efforts and not QUANTITY. The journal carries out a major mentoring and capacity building role for budding African scholars, and also gives visibility to African scholars in general by highlighting and sharing their work internationally.

Peer Review Process

http://ajfand.net/AJFAND/informationtoauthors.html

http://ajfand.net/AJFAND/guidelinestoreviewers.html

The AJFAND is a peer-reviewed journal. The journal employs a double-blind peer review process. Every article submitted is first subjected to editorial review. If it is consistent with the editorial policy and conforms to these basic guidelines, it is sent to three knowledgeable and experienced reviewers. A paper is sent to reviewers only when it is in acceptable shape. To avoid unnecessary delays, the author is encouraged to visit the website and to consult the immediate past issue for the format.

If at least two reviewers agree that the paper should be published in AJFAND, it is accepted and either sent immediately for copy-editing or returned to the authors for consideration of the suggestions therein from the reviewers and/or the Editor-in-Chief. If the reviewers do not agree with each other, the paper is either sent for further reviewing or the editor makes a decision. In this case, the author (s) is given a chance to respond to the reviewers’ comments.

Authors are under no obligation to effect changes suggested by the reviewers as long as they can justify their position.

 

Publication Frequency

AJFAND is published quarterly.

 

Open Access Policy

http://ajfand.net/AJFAND/copyrightstatement.html

Open access is a publication model that allows unrestricted dissemination of research article to the global community through the internet. AJFAND is Open Access. Thus, abstracts and full texts of articles published by AJFAND are freely accessible to everyone immediately after publication.

Article Publishing Fees

http://ajfand.net/AJFAND/informationtoauthors.html#Policy

In order to maintain a secretariat and the costs associated with production (online hosting and communication), AJFAND charges article processing fees, but only once an article has been accepted for publication having passed the review process. This is so that editorial decisions are not influenced by ability (or inability) to pay. The fee is $500 per article. AJFAND extends rebates in certain circumstances at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief.
