Africa Journal of Nursing and Midwifery is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal that seeks the submission of unpublished articles on current nursing and health-related issues. It encourages debate, both theoretical and practical, on a wide range of topics that represent a variety of cross-disciplinary interests. Africa Journal of Nursing and Midwifery is interested in attracting submissions that exhibit innovative qualitative and quantitative research methods and approaches. What is of particular interest to the journal is research that supports high-level research learning and teaching, which is fresh, exciting, analytical, critical, controversial, stimulating and creative.
The journal is cognisant of the need for capacity building in the area of scholarly writing and publication among novice writers. It is also committed to the acceleration and development of capacity among marginalised groups, including those from developing countries, with particular emphasis on Africa. While Africa Journal of Nursing and Midwifery challenges contributors to use innovative, provocative and creative ways of presenting and reporting their research, the journal encourages authors to write clearly, logically and systematically so that their content is accessible to a wide readership, particularly those individuals who may not be familiar with the subject matter under discussion.
