African Journal of Physics (AJP

AJP is a publication of the African Scientific Network. 

Our mission

  • Establish the tradition of continent wide scientific publication,
  • Generate collaborations among African scientists world wide
  • Introduce/Publicize the progress in physics  research and education in Africa 
  • Introduce/Feature African Scientists to the world
  • Promote science, Mathematics, Technology education in Africa
Our mission can't be fulfilled without the participation of  African Educators, professionals and students world wide. 

Publication process

The publication of an article involves several steps one of which is peer review. Once we receive your article, it will be sent to three qualified peer reviewers to determine if the standards set by the Journal are met. The standards are not different from those journals published by, for example, the American Physical Society.

  1. Validity: Is the work scientifically sound ?
  2. Importance: Does the manuscript report substantial research ?
  3. Interest: Is the manuscript of broad interest ?
  4. Ethics: We endorse the  Statement of ethics and responsibilities of authors submitting to AIP Journals
