About Us

The Journal of African Policy Studies (ISSN 1058-5613) is an independent peer-reviewed publication of the Institute on African Affairs concerned with global, regional, and domestic policy issues relating to Africa.  

The Journal's aims are to: 

• Critically and analytically assess a wide range of issues relating to Africa. This includes public policy, institutions, processes, and policy impacts. 

• Publish articles and review books that are relevant to both scholars and practitioners involved in policy making and doing policy analysis relevant to Africa. 

• Disseminate findings, options and recommendations to the relevant audience.  

The Journal is interdisciplinary in scope and welcomes articles, review essays, and research notes dealing with all levels of public policy as they relate to Africa. These pieces may be in the form of case studies, comparative analysis, or theory construction. The main criteria for acceptance of an article is that it be of high intellectual quality, original, and be focused on some aspect of African public policy, including policy institutions, processes, or policy impacts. There is no restriction in terms of policy areas.  

The Journal of African Policy Studies (ISSN 1058-5613) is published two times a year. Volumes 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23 contain only Issue No. 1. We were unable to produce volume 17.  

Abstracting and Indexing: The contents of the journal are abstracted or indexed in PAIS International Public Affairs Information Service; Sociological Abstracts; and Worldwide Political Science Abstracts.
