An Official African online Scientific Journal
Your Paper Your Way
We now differentiate between the requirements for new and revised submissions. You may choose to submit your manuscript as a single Word or PDF file to be used in the refereeing process. Only when your paper is at the revision stage, will you be requested to put your paper in to a 'correct format' for acceptance and provide the items required for the publication of your article.

The journal invites papers in all fundamental aspects of science and technology, including instrumental developments and applications in biology, chemistry, pharmacy, geology, physics, management and languages also. Types of paper Journal de afrikana welcomes the following types of papers: Full length articles: Comprehensive description and discussion of original research investigations; the experimental techniques must be described in detail. The manuscript text should not exceed 8,000 words (excluding tables and figure captions) and a maximum of 8 normal-sized figures and/or tables is allowed.
Accelerated Communications: Brief reports (normally no longer than 4 printed paged or 2,000 words) of significant, original and timely research. In considering the suitability of an Accelerated Communication for publication, the editors pay particular attention to the originality of the research performed and the desirability of rapid publication. Accelerated Communications will be published within 8-10 weeks after acceptance of the article by the editor concerned.
Reviews: Timely, critical reviews will focus on recent developments while keeping historical documentation to a minimum. Reviews will often be solicited, but prospective authors are also encouraged to contact the editors or editorial board members regarding the appropriateness of the subject matter. In general, the length should not exceed 30-40 printed pages.
Classroom Articles: The idea behind this is to give undergraduate students a chance to participate in a scientific publication at an early stage of their career. These articles should result from teaching courses in which students were actively involved and may either appear as co-authors or be listed in the Acknowledgements. A direct contribution of the students to the results reported is essential; mere participation in a course does not suffice for co-authorship. The new article type will include a "box" with a brief description of the scholarly implementation of the scientific task.
Young Scientist Features: This format is intended to promote young researchers in the area of mass spectrometry by giving them a chance to present their achievements and future perspectives. "Young Scientist Features" should have 4 - 8 printed pages and hence do not need to be comprehensive reviews of a field, though the major contributors should be referenced. These articles will include a CV with a photograph and typically have a single author. This type of article will be published on invitation by the editors only
