How Authors can use AJOL

AJOL can be a wonderful tool for authors to find journals that might be interested in publishing their work.

However, we currently receive many, many emails from authors asking us to help them get their papers published in AJOL partner journals. AJOL is not a journal publisher. We are a Not for Profit free journal host and aggregator. If you would like to publish your paper in a journal on AJOL, PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL OR CONTACT AJOL, as this will not help you.

Instead, the best approach is to use the BROWSE JOURNALS tools on AJOL to find journals that publish research in the field/s in which you have conducted your research. Make sure to read the description that each journal provides to ensure you are not wasting your time, and the Editors' time by submitting a paper that really does not comply with that journal's focus and scope.

Then, using the links at the top of that journal's AJOL page, click on "ABOUT" and select either "INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS" or "CONTACT" from the drop down menu. This will give you all you need to know about how to submit your paper to the journal directly.
