African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines (AJTCAM)


“The African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines (AJTCAM), a broad-based journal, is founded on two key tenets: To publish exciting research in all areas of applied medicinal plants, Traditional medicines, Complementary Alternative Medicines, food and agricultural technologies, and promotion of healthy use of medicinal products. Secondly, to provide the most rapid turn-around time possible for reviewing and publishing, and to disseminate the articles freely for teaching and reference purposes. All articles published in AJTCAM are peer-reviewed.” AJTCAM is published quarterly, and online.


The African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines is published by African Networks on Ethnomedicines (ANE), "an independent network committed to ensuring peer-reviewed ethnomedicinal works and is permanently available online without charge or any other barriers to access.”
