Author Assist, by the African Journal of Emergency Medicine
It is the aim of the African Journal of Emergency Medicine to be representative of all parts of the African continent; we recognise within this that some African researchers in emergency care may be disadvantaged in the available range of journals into which they can publish their work. We are aware that this is due to many reasons, including that topics are concerned with conditions which are largely irrelevant to other audiences.
AfJEM is dedicated to supporting all authors who wish to make an attempt at publication on an African emergency care topic. In order to maintain and produce a high quality, international standard Emergency Medicine journal, AfJEM has devised Author Assist. AfJEM uses a team of experienced volunteers (Author Assistants) to help improve the quality of manuscripts before peer-review submission.
Visit AfJEM's website if you:
- Would like to apply for assistance with your manuscript
- Have not started your manuscript and need help on how to go about doing that
- Have not started a research project but need help on how to develop your ideas
- Are an inexperienced author who would like to collaborate on a systematic review
- Would like to become an assistant
* AfJEM does not provide research development per se. However, we recommend the Science Supercourse ran out of the Library of Alexandria (YouTube clip) if you want to develop a research project from the ground up. If you have already done the research and want to write it up you can use Authoraid. AuthorAID helps researchers in developing countries to publish and otherwise communicate their work. It also serves as a wider global forum to discuss and disseminate research.
