Journal of Asian Midwives (JAM) is the first regional and international peer review online biannual midwifery journal. JAM aims to promote midwifery in Asia through the publication of high quality articles. The journal is peer-reviewed for its research articles and open to all. We encourage the submission of research papers, theoretical papers, policy papers in the field of midwifery practice and education, maternity care and related fields. We accept all forms of research, including research based on primary and secondary analysis of data, as well as quantitative, qualitative research and mixed methods research. The Regional and International Editorial, Associate and the Advisory Boards maintain its quality through fast, fair, and professional peer review.
JAM is owned and published by the South Asian Midwifery Alliance (SAMA), founded in 2008 with a vision to promote maternal and neonatal health and advocate for the midwifery profession in the region. SAMA comprises the midwifery associations of five South Asian countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan.
The biannual issues of JAM will be published in June and December.
Aga Khan University Libraries and Aga Khan University School of Nursing and Midwifery have agreed to host this online journal through AKU Institutional Repository eCommons.
