Peer Review Policy
All manuscripts submitted to IJMA will be subjected to peer-review and are therefore expected to be of high quality. Manuscripts submitted for publication consideration must have the ability to contribute to the field of maternal and child health and HIV/AIDS as it impacts the MCH populations. Prior to submitting a manuscript, authors are encouraged to always ask themselves: what is the small contribution that my manuscript contributes to the field? Contributions may be in research, practice, or policy. IJMA operates a single-blind review system. This means that the names of the reviewers are hidden from the authors but the reviewers know the authors. Single-blind reviews foster reviewer anonymity and allows for impartial decisions free from influence by the author(s). Submitted manuscripts are usually reviewed by at least two peer-reviewers. Peer reviewers recommend to the Editor whether a manuscript should be accepted, revised or rejected. They also use a confidential section to alert the Editor of any issues relating to suspected author misconduct such as plagiarism and unethical behavior.
