About the PAMJ Blog

25 Jan 2021 / Information

Welcome to the official Blog of the Pan African Medical Journal.

The PAMJ Blog was launched in early 2021, in response to the comments of our authors for a space to exchange on non-scientifically published issues. A response was long overdue.

The PAMJ Blog is run and managed by the staff of the Pan African Medical Journal and will be the sole medium where all issues related to activities of all PAMJ Journals and products will be shared and discussed.

Although the blog is run by PAMJ staff (editors, scientific editors, and editorial board members), the PAMJ invite experts, enthusiast, and professionals passionate and knowledgeable on issues such as Open Access Publishing in Africa, health service delivery, research, health policy, or any other topic we think could potentially interest our wide readership and authorship. We will also use the blog to engage our authors on various topics through blog post comments or polls.

The PAMJ Blog will also serve as a bulletin board where important announcements, notices, upcoming events will be posted and will publish posts in English and in French, the two languages of the PAMJ.
