Sources of Support
The journal follows double blind peer review process. The manuscripts will be reviewed initially by the Board and later by two reviewers who are experts/specialists in the respective fields working in academic institutions, industries, companies and/or working as consultants either in Ethiopia or elsewhere. The Board will identify suitable experts and obtain their comments related to quality, size, type and suitability of the manuscript. Based on comments, if necessary, the manuscripts will be sent to third reviewer for comments. Majority opinion will prevail. In special cases, the Board will take the final decision.
Open Access Policy
MEJS provides open access to its contents based on the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI) recommendations. It works on the principle that research be made available freely to the scientific community and public, and MEJS strongly supports the global exchange of knowledge.

Momona Ethiopian Journal of Science (MEJS) is established in December 2008 by Mekelle University to promote the cause of advanced study and research in all branches of physical, biological, chemical, geological and computational sciences. It provides a platform for the scientists to exchange ideas among themselves and interact with industry. It is a peer-reviewed international interdisciplinary electronic science e-journal and is available on www.ajol.info since 2009 with free access. Two issues are published in a year in English and constitute one volume per year. The journal operates in a manner similar to a conventional paper journal but at no cost to the user to read or publish manuscripts.
MEJS also provides a platform for communication and exchange of research results and other general information among scientists and others concerning earth science, physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and related disciplines. It tries to act as an international forum for the scientific community to undertake discussion of techniques and approaches, leading to a higher degree of efficiency in scientific knowledge and its application on the ground. At the same time, MEJS being an e-journal facilitates rapid review, speedy processing of manuscripts and timely dissemination of information.
Publication of research results and exchange of information is essential to the growth of any discipline. There are several international and national journals available for scientists to publish their research results. Among them, some are highly specialized and dedicated to a particular profession or discipline. MEJS has come into existence as a broad-based multi-disciplinary journal to cover all aspects from basic to applied research works which are related to natural and computational sciences in general and earth science, physics, biology, chemistry and mathematics in particular. MEJS though initiated as paper (print) journal (ISSN: 2073-073X), from this issue onwards it will be available as an e-journal with its own identity number (ISSN: 2220-184X). The online version will be strengthened further in future keeping in view the need to make MEJS a truly international journal and serve the international scientific community by providing information free of charge on World Wide Web (WWW). The online version makes the present initiative possible and provides a suitable mechanism for widespread dissemination of information globally.
MEJS publishes all articles free of cost. It will not charge any processing fee in any form.
The Momona Ethiopian Journal of Science accepts the manuscripts for consideration with the understanding that the manuscript has not been published and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Only original articles will be considered for publication if they have been published previously as abstracts, but not if they have been published previously as extended abstract (>1000 words). This applies to both electronic and print versions of the journal. The authors should assign copyright ownership to the Editorial Office of MEJS in the event that the manuscript is accepted for publication in the Momona Ethiopian Journal of Science. All accepted manuscripts must be accompanied by a copyright statement signed by all authors. A copy of the copyright form will be supplied along with the final reviewed version of the manuscript that is sent for final proof- reading. Authors may make multiple copies of the form if necessary and send to the Editorial Office with author’s signature(s) even individually.
