Announcement of the launch of a new African journal - Undergraduate Research in Health journal (URHJ)
The Undergraduate Research in Health journal (URHJ) is an online, bi-annual, peer-reviewed journal that presents research done by undergraduate students in the health sciences. The journal is created in order to embrace the notion that sharing research outputs is part of the ladder of scholarship for undergraduate students in health science. The journal aims to encourage, support and showcase the work of undergraduate health sciences students and those that have recently graduated. The journal will only consider manuscripts written by undergraduate students or manuscripts written collaboratively by undergraduate students and academics. The first author should be the undergraduate student. It is strongly suggested to add an academic collaborator as the corresponding author (where possible).
URHJ is dedicated to the publication of high-quality undergraduate health sciences student research. The journal welcomes academic articles from all institutions who train health sciences or health professional students in Africa and beyond. The first author should be the student. All articles will undergo a rigorous peer review which is based on initial editor screening and two anonymous reviews by members of the academic fraternity.
