ABOUT THIS JOURNAL

 

About the journal

The SAMJ is a monthly, peer–reviewed, internationally indexed, general medical journal publishing leading research impacting clinical care in Africa. The Journal is not limited to articles that have ‘general medical content’, but is intending to capture the spectrum of medical and health sciences, grouped by relevance to the country’s burden of disease. This will include research in the social sciences and economics that is relevant to the medical issues around our burden of disease.

The journal carries research articles and letters, editorials, clinical practice and other medical articles and personal opinion, South African health–related news, obituaries, general correspondence, and classified advertisements (refer to the section policies for further information).

Its abbreviated title is SAMJ, S. Afr. Med. J., which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
