When the Africa Journal of Nursing and Midwifery (AJNM) was evaluated to become an academic accredited journal in 2007 (and to be listed by South Africa's Department of Higher Education and Training as such since 2008), every issue contained five articles. We slowly increased the number of articles. We are proud to present 13 articles in this issue of the AJNM and hope to continue publishing 13 articles in each issue. As an accredited journal we have to meet specific standards and cannot publish articles from only one institution or one conference or one research project. We strive to present a variety of articles from different countries related to different fields of research. Some manuscripts submitted to the AJNM were rejected because they were based on outdated data, the references were too old, the authors failed to supply proof of ethical clearance granted for data collection, the statistics were incorrect, ethical concerns were raised by the data collection procedures, or the manuscript needed serious editing. Authors can enhance the chances of getting their manuscripts published by complying with the journal's author guidelines and by ensuring that they submit their articles to the most relevant journal, judged by the contents of each manuscript. If a manuscript has been rejected by one journal, it needs to be rewritten in the required format for submission to the next journal. Submitting a manuscript in the incorrect format, indicates to the editor that this manuscript might have been rejected elsewhere.
