| Introduction|| |
The Nigerian Journal of Surgical Research seeks to advance the surgical research of Nigerians and the world at large. It will serve as a source of information on the state of the art of surgical sciences. The journal will publish articles in the field of Surgery and other fields which have relevance in the care of a surgical patient. We encourage researchers from all over the world especially Nigeria and Africa to submit their valuable and cutting edge research findings in the field of surgical sciences for consideration/publication.
| Key New Features|| |
The Nigerian Journal of Surgical Research (njsrjournal.org) has grown to an international scale. It is currently online and is dedicated to bring to physicians excellent research and key information on clinical practice. It also aims to present the information in an understandable and clinically useful format not only to surgeons but to relevant stake holders in surgical sciences. Partnering with Medknow publishers has enabled the Journal to gradually evolve and meet the changing needs of its readers in the twenty-first century by using innovative formats and technologies for new features and faster delivery as well as easy access. The new website gives users a deeper, broader, and more appealing experience through enhanced search and navigation, and a number of integrated multimedia features.
Easier and faster processing of manuscript
The Nigerian Journal of Surgical Research employs a highly rigorous peer-review process to assess manuscripts for scientific accuracy, innovation, and significance. The peer-review process often works to improve research so that high quality information will reach physicians and the public. The careful editing process which is often fast usually accompanies extensive revisions and assures detailed checking for accuracy. The editors have set policies to ensure that authors are happy and appropriately inspired to disclose all relevant financial associations and that those financial associations do not influence published content. These factors are aim to contribute to a high reputation of the Journal.
Articles are reviewed for publication on the assumption that its contents have not been submitted simultaneously to another journal and/or have not been accepted for publication elsewhere; authors will be asked to confirm that this is the case during the electronic submission process. Dual publication, if discovered will lead to automatic rejection or may prejudice acceptance of future submissions in the Journal.
There is an embedded, partial, triple blind feedback mechanism during review process for authors, reviewers and the editorial team. Authors of published articles also enjoy feedback mechanism of how their published articles are influencing the scientific community and readers. This is done by keeping and updating to authors, a track or statistics of downloads views and citations of their published articles.
The Journal does not charge for manuscript submission fee but only charge a token of publication fee when an article is accepted for publication.
The Journal, in a short moment, will create and include a short oral and video abstract of the research findings by the principal author. The aim is to enable authors to personally explain the importance of their work to the reader. This will enhance the reader's understanding and appreciation of an article through the accessible presentation of the main results and conclusions.
Vibrant editorial board
The Journal has a reconstituted, very dynamic and vibrant editorial board that is ready to take the Journal to greater heights. The board is committed to fast review and manuscript processing with an overall interest in research that will change clinical practice or teach us something new about the biology of surgical disease.
