Manuscript submission

Authors are advised to submit their manuscripts electronically and where such electronic services are not available, manuscripts should be submitted in triplicate and authors are advised to keep copies. PDF files are not acceptable. Each manuscript should be accompanied by a cover letter which should contain the following: (i) the name, address, email address, and telephone/fax numbers of the corresponding author (ii) statement that the paper contains original material, not submitted, in press, or published elsewhere in any form; (iii) a note describing if the manuscript is one of several papers derived from the same dataset or if similar or overlapping data are reported in any other manuscripts and, if so, how the current submission differs from the others (this should also be stated in the manuscript); (iv) a statement that each author has contributed significantly to the work and agrees to the submission; (v) a note describing any conflict of interest regarding the paper or statement that no conflict exists; (6) an explanation of the contribution of the present manuscript to the literature; (7) if desired, suggestions for possible reviewers, and finally (8) the signatures of all authors.

All manuscripts should be submitted to:

Use standard abbreviations approved by the Council of Biology Editors Style Guide or other standard sources. Authors should write out the full term for each abbreviation at its first use unless it is a standard unit of measure. Review process: After initial screening, which takes only a few days, manuscripts are sent to two referees. If appropriate, a statistical reviewer is involved. On average, authors are informed on the outcome of the review within 6-8 weeks with a first decision. Poor English does not prevent acceptance provided the paper’s content is of high scientific quality. The revised manuscript is assessed by the editor, or, in case of a major revision, returned to the referees. All accepted manuscripts are copy-edited. Authors are strongly advised to work on reviewers’ comments and return the revised manuscripts as soon as possible (preferably within two weeks). Rejected manuscripts will not be returned to the authors.
The Editors reserve the right to accept or reject any manuscript submitted for publication. The editors cannot enter into correspondence about papers considered unsuitable for publication and their decision will be final. Neither the editors nor the publishers accept responsibility for the views of authors expressed in their contributions.

Authorship: The journal has adopted the guidelines of the
International Committee of Medical Editors regarding authorship.
These state that an “authors” is any person who has made substantive intellectual contributions to the paper. In order for someone to qualify as an author should (i) have made substantial contributions to the conception and design, or acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; (ii) have been involved in drafting the manuscript or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and (iii) have given final approval of the version to be published. Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the content. Acquisition of funding, collection of data, or general supervision of research group, alone does not justify authorship. All others who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an acknowledgements section. The order of authorship should be a joint decision of the co-authors. Conflict of interest. Authors are advised to declare any sources of funding and potential conflicting interest, such as receiving funds or fees by, or holding stocks and shares in, an organization that may profit or lose through publication of the paper. Declaring a competing interest will not lead to rejection of the manuscript, but editors would like to be made aware of it. For further information on what constitutes a conflict of interest visit the website http://www.icmje.org/sponsor.htm  Reprints. The corresponding authors of articles will be supplied free with one copy of the journal in which their publication appears. Off prints may be ordered in multiples of 50 at a cost of US$ 200. Copyright: Copyright of articles is held by the East African Journal of Public Health. However, authors may use their own material elsewhere provided acknowledgement is made to the journal as the original place of publication.
