Sustainable Development Goals
Our mission is to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015. Open access is critical for ensuring that scientific findings are translated into societal gains. In this regard, article processing charges will not be a barrier to publishing in JCMSA.
At our Journal, we are committed to promoting research that addresses the most pressing issues facing our planet. Through the publication of high-quality articles, we aim to support the implementation of the SDGs and create a more sustainable and equitable future for all.

We invite authors to contribute their latest research findings towards this publication. Authors can conveniently submit their manuscript online at jcmsa.org.za.

The submission guidelines include information about the types of articles received for publication and preparing a manuscript for submission.
Article processing charges
The journal has a sponsorship agreement with the publisher for the purpose of funding the article processing charges (APCs) of qualifying manuscripts. All responsibility for publication is taken by the publisher, so authors do not need to pay an APC.
