The South African Family Practice journal has been transferred from Medpharm Publications to AOSIS.

The archives and current publications have been transferred to the new website: We thank all the authors of submissions for their patience during this transition period. The new website is now fully functional, and authors can register and submit their manuscripts online. We encourage all existing authors, reviewers and users to update their online profile and to indicate their reviewing interests.

As editor, I would like to thank both publisher teams for working very hard to ensure a smooth transfer process. This transfer was handled professionally in terms of the NISO RP-24-2019 Transfer Code of Practice. On a personal note, I would like to thank the Medpharm team (especially Ms Ina du Toit, Ms Robyn Marais, Ms Chandré Blignaut and Ms Cheryl Stulting) for their commitment over the past few years, to help ensure the growth of the South African Family Practice journal.

I look forward to continuing this journey of growing the journal with the AOSIS team, which includes the operations coordinator: Ms Michelle King –, the operations coordinator manager: Ms Gerna Rossouw – and the publishing manager: Ms Trudie Retief –

Best wishes,

Dr Klaus B von Pressentin
