East and Central African Journal of Surgery (ECAJS)

The East and Central African Journal of Surgery (ECAJS) is a peer-reviewed, open access, tri-annual publication of the College of Surgeons of East, Central and Southern Africa (COSECSA).

The ECAJS aims to advance the science and art of surgery and facilitate the exchange ideas among surgeons in the constituent countries of COSECSA. The journal will consider new manuscripts on clinical research, surgical technique, surgical practice, trauma, critical care, as well as clinical reviews, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, editorials, perspectives, and letters of interest to readers in Africa and globally. The ECAJS is indexed at African Journals Online (AJOL) and Bioline International.
