Journal of the African Activist Association
How to submit an article
UFAHAMU has been an important forum for the publication of materials addressing Africa and the African Diaspora for more than 30 years. Named after the Swahili word for comprehension, understanding or being, UFAHAMU is committed to views about social issues, addressing both the general reader and the scholar. Since its establishment in 1970, UFAHAMU continues to challenge and correct misconceptions about Africa, thereby creating relevant criteria for African Studies. It publishes material supportive of the African revolution and socially significant works of African history, politics, economics, sociology, anthropology, law, planning and development, literature and other topics about the continent and the African Diaspora.
We encourage our readers to submit poetry, fiction, scholarly articles, commentaries, political or economic analyses, review articles and artwork. You may submit your work to UFAHAMU at www.ufahamu.org or http://repositories.cdlib.org/international/asc/ufahamu/.
New users will need to create an account. UFAHAMU is no longer accepting submissions via post or mail.
Our online submission process now requires that manuscripts be submitted in separate stages in order to ensure the anonymity of the review process and to enable appropriate formatting. The main text must be submitted as a stand-alone file (in Microsoft Word) without a title page, abstract, page numbers, or other headers or footers. The title, abstract, and author information should be input according to the directions on the site. Abstracts (400 words or less) should be submitted in plain text and should not include information identifying the author(s) or their institutional affiliations. All submissions except for book reviews must include an abstract before they will be considered for review.
Since we publish two issues per year, we continuously accept submissions. Though we occasionally publish special, thematic issues, most issues treat a broad range of topics. So, please, feel free to submit all of your African-related work.
