African Social Science Review

Aims & Scope

African Social Science Review (ISSN 1521-6667) is an annual publication co-sponsored by theCollege of Humanities and Social Sciences at Kennesaw State University and Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University. This publication seeks articles from all disciplines of social science. The Review particularly welcomes manuscripts on the social, economic, political, and policy problems and issues of the African continent and the Diaspora as well as empirical and theoretical articles. Book reviewers are requested to submit articles on recent publications in related topics. Only papers not currently under review or previously published elsewhere can be considered. All submissions are blind refereed. Clarity and directness of presentation are required.

Manuscripts must be typed and doubled-spaced following the Chicago Manual of Style. Authors are advised to keep copies for their own record since it will not be possible for us to return the manuscripts. We need an abstract of no more than 150 words. The length of the paper should not exceed 25 double-spaced typewritten pages, including notes, references, tables, figures or graphs and appendices; all must be presented on separate pages, with instructions suggesting the placement in the text. Notes and references should appear at the end of the article. A separate cover sheet showing the title of the paper, the name, affiliation, position and address of the author should accompany each submission. To enhance blind review, the body of the text should include the title, but not the author’s name. The views of expressed in published articles are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the editors or editorial board.
