Article submissions

You may follow two routes to submit your article: our preferred route and a simple route. In the preferred route, you register as a user on our website and sign in to submit your article using an online form (this helps our administration). In the simple route, you send us an e-mail and attach your article to it.

  • PREFERRED ROUTE

Your first step is to familiarise yourself with our Guidelines for authors and House style.

If you are submitting an article online to us for the first time, your second step is navigate to Author Registration and create a user profile. Once this has been done, you will receive an automated email containing an activation link to confirm your registration.

The third step is to login either at Author login or Submit articles > Upload an article. Click on the Upload Facility link that then becomes visible, and complete the submission form. 

LDD's editors will be automatically notified of your submission, and will reply to you shortly.

  • SIMPLE ROUTE

Alternatively, attach your article to an e-mail and address it to our editor in chief, Dr Jamil Muzuzi, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. In the body of your article, please provide your name and institutional affiliation, and indicate if you have submitted the article to another publication.
