Decolonising the medical literature: We are not just a low-resource setting
I was appointed the Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of the Malawi Medical Journal (MMJ), a periodical of the Malawi College of Medicine (www.medcol.mw) and the Medical Association of Malawi (MAM) in February 2019. It is a daunting task certainly to be at the helm of such a prestigious medical journal indexed in/by almost all the databases that matter in medical publishing. Our journal has published since the 1970s, first as the Medical Quarterly, and later as the Malawi Medical Journal. The establishment of Malawi first medical school in 1991 increased the need for a national medical journal and therefore it became natural to join forces with the MAM to make the journal better.
