Reviewers

Scientific and medical literature shared through open access channels is growing exponentially. New journals are published each passing day, consequently competing for quality and relevance by attracting manuscript submissions, as well as attracting and sustaining a pool of experienced and valuable reviewers.

Pamj review process

At PAMJ, we review all the material we receive. The editors of PAMJ performs an internal peer-review at the end of which, a manuscript can be rejected, accepted or submitted for external peer-review.

During the initial internal review, the editors focus on the overall look of the manuscript, adherence to journal standards, the quality of the written language. At this stage, we also focus on the topic addressed in the manuscript, its relevance to the journal audience, its originality, adherence to publication and research ethics. The overall methodology of the work is also reviewed at this stage to try to identify gross methodological shortfalls. Most of the manuscripts will not be send for external peer review at this stage in other to avoid spending valuable reviewers time. We may eventually request the authors to submit a revised version of their manuscript at this stage.

Material for reviewers

To facilitate the assessment of manuscript by peer-reviewers, PAMJ provides a peer-review form. The peer reviewers will provide their expert judgment on the quality (general aspects, objectives, methods, majors revisions, minor revisions, opinion on whether or not the manuscript should be published). A copy of the reviewer’s template is available here.
Other material exists that could be of help to peer-reviewers, we encourage them to look at them:
