Information for the Authors

The Western Nigeria Journal of Medical Sciences is an official publication of the Osun State University (UNIOSUN) Teaching Hospital. The Western Nigeria Journal of Medical Sciences publishes peer-reviewed original articles, reviews, and correspondences on all aspects of medicine and the medical sciences. The WNJMS is a recognized vehicle for timely, high-quality, relevant research and commentary for the community of researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to support knowledge transfer, understanding of complex public health problems, and informed decisions to promote public health and the medical sciences. Manuscripts will be considered for publication with the understanding that the work has not already been reported in a published paper or described in a paper accepted for publication elsewhere in print or in electronic media. This does not preclude consideration of a complete report that follows the publication of a preliminary report, however, such as an abstract. Nor does it preclude consideration of a paper that has been presented at a scientific meeting if not published in full in meeting proceedings or similar publication. Circumstances in which there has been any other form of public disclosure of unpublished data must be declared in the covering letter to the editor and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. When submitting a manuscript for consideration, please also state clearly in your covering letters the dates of the study. All original contributions are reviewed by the co-editors and sent to two or more external reviewers as part of a double-blind peer-review process (authors and reviewers are anonymous). The editor reserves the right to make editorial changes in all materials published in the Journal and cannot enter into correspondence about papers not accepted for publication. Your manuscript should be accompanied by a list of three reviewers, their addresses, and emails. The following types of papers are welcome: Review articles, original research articles, short communications, case reports, and letters to the Editor, historical/socio-demographic aspects.
