The (AJNM) has been published for 14 years. Since its inception in 1998, AJNM has been published as partial fulfilment of the obligations of the Department of Health Studies, Unisa, as a World Health Collaborating Centre (WHO CC). Based on this WHO CC status, hard copies of every published issue are posted to the World Health Organisation (WHO) offices in the 52 countries comprising the WHO African region. In 2015, AJNM will slowly migrate to an online publication platform called Open Journal Systems, a popular publishing workflow system that is used by many journals internationally. It was developed by the public knowledge project and it is available as free software. The migration of the journal to online access will assist with an evaluation of the impact that the journal has on society and this will also assist in improving the peer review and publication process of manuscripts submitted. The decision was made that the journal will slowly migrate to online publication as of 2015 and adapt the new standardised layout and citation style (Chicago manual of style, Author-date system) to help facilitate the digital publication process.
