Instructions to Authors

Ø About the Journal
African Journal of Paediatric Surgery (ISSN - 0189-6725) is the premier periodical on Paediatric Surgery in Africa. Its international readership is reflected in the prestigious international Editorial Board and worldwide reviewers. AJPS is indexed PubMed/MEDLINE, African Journal Online and the African Index Medicus (AIM). The journal’s full text is available online at The journal allows free access (Open Access) to its contents and permits authors to self-archive final accepted version of the articles on any OAI-compliant institutional / subject-based repository.
Ø Scope of the journal
The Journal publishes peer-reviewed original research papers, case reports, systematic reviews, meta-analysis, and debates, covering technical, clinical and bioengineering studies related to paediatric surgery well being including ethical and social issues. The journal gives preference to clinically oriented studies over experimental and animal studies.
Ø The Editorial Process
All submitted manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. During submission, the contributor is requested to provide names of two or three qualified reviewers who have had experience in the subject of the submitted manuscript, but this is not mandatory. The reviewers should not be affiliated with the same institutes as the contributor/s. However, the selection of these reviewers is at the sole discretion of the editor.
Internal Editorial Review Process: On submission, editors review all manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, or lack of a significant message are rejected before proceeding for formal peer-review. Manuscripts that are unlikely to be of interest to the AJPS readers are also liable to be rejected at this stage itself.
External Editorial Review Process: Manuscripts that are found suitable for publication in AJPS are sent to two or more expert reviewers. The journal follows a double-blind review process, wherein the reviewers and authors are unaware of each other’s identity. Every manuscript is also assigned to a member of the editorial team, who based on the comments from the reviewers takes a final decision on the manuscript. The comments and suggestions (acceptance/ rejection/ amendments in manuscript) received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point by point response to reviewers’ comments and submit a revised version of the manuscript. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript.
Manuscripts accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format.
Proofs: Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within three days. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period.
The whole process of submission of the manuscript to final decision and sending and receiving proofs is completed online. To achieve faster and greater dissemination of knowledge and information, the journal publishes articles online as ‘Ahead of Print’ immediately on acceptance.
Ø Authorship Criteria
Each contributor should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the content of the manuscript. Authorship credit should be based only on substantial contributions to each of the three components mentioned below:
1.Concept and design of study or acquisition of data or analysis and interpretation of data;
2.Drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and
3.Final approval of the version to be published.
Participation solely in the acquisition of funding or the collection of data does not justify authorship. General supervision of the research group is not sufficient for authorship. The order of naming the contributors should be based on the relative contribution of the contributor towards the study and writing the manuscript. Once submitted the order cannot be changed without written consent of all the contributors. The journal prescribes a maximum number of authors for manuscripts depending upon the type of manuscript, its scope and number of institutions involved (vide infra). The authors should provide a justification, if the number of authors exceeds these limits.
Ø Contribution Details
Contributors should provide a description of contributions made by each of them towards the manuscript. Description should be divided in following categories, as applicable: concept, design, definition of intellectual content, literature search, clinical studies, experimental studies, data acquisition, data analysis, statistical analysis, manuscript preparation, manuscript editing and manuscript review.
One or more author should take responsibility for the integrity of the work as a whole from inception to published article and should be designated as 'guarantor'.
