This is the first academic journal that directly addresses the needs of scholars working in the important field of African Diaspora studies. It will advance the analytical and interrogative discourses that constitute this distinctive interdisciplinary study of the deterritorialised and transnational nature of the African and Black Diaspora.
Beyond essentialist modes of theorizing, the journal will locate the movement of African descended populations (geographical, cultural, social, political and psychological) in the context of globalized and transnational spaces by emphasizing the centrality of African and Black Diaspora.
The journal will publish research articles, commentaries and book reviews. All articles will be peer-reviewed. Authors interested in contributing should contact one of the three Editors. A special issue Navigating African Diaspora: Crossing, Belonging and Presence, is in preparation.
AJHC is an open access journal that provides rapid publication (monthly) of articles in all areas of the subject.

African Journals OnLine (AJOL) is the world's largest and pre-eminent collection of peer-reviewed, African-published scholarly journals. Historically, scholarly information has flowed from North to South and from West to East. It has also been difficult for African researchers to access the work of other African academics.
In partnership with hundreds of journals from all over the continent, AJOL works to change this, so that African-origin research output is available to Africans and to the rest of the world.
AJOL is a Non-Profit Organisation based in South Africa.
The African Studies Review is the principal academic and scholarly journal of the African Studies Association. The ASR appears three times per year in April, September, and December, and is mailed to members of the Association as one of the many benefits of membership.
The mission of the ASR is to publish the highest quality articles, as well as book and film reviews in all academic disciplines that are of interest to the interdisciplinary audience of ASA members. The editors welcome manuscript submissions from scholars everywhere, whether or not they are members of the ASA. Each manuscript is normally sent out to panels of peer reviewers whose judgment the editors rely upon in deciding whether to accept the manuscript for publication.
All matters pertaining to advertising in the ASR, obtaining back issues, replacing lost issues, address changes, and ASA membership matters should be addressed directly to the Secretariat of the African Studies Association.
The articles that appear in the ASR are edited by Ralph Faulkingham of the University of Massachusetts Amherst and by Mitzi Goheen of Amherst College. Book reviews are commissioned and edited by Catharine Newbury and David Newbury of Smith College. The editors rely on the faculty of the Five College African Studies Council for editorial policy guidance, and the costs of editing the ASR are borne by Five Colleges, Inc., a consortium representing Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
