Online access: Africa; Edinburgh Full Text: 1996 - current, delayed 1 year(s)
Africa is the premier journal devoted to the study of African societies and culture. Published as the journal of the International African Institute, editorial policy encourages an interdisciplinary approach, involving humanities, social sciences, and environmental sciences.
Africa aims to give increased attention to African production of knowledge, highlighting the work of local African thinkers and writers, emerging social and cultural trends 'on the ground', and links between local and national levels of society. At the same time, it maintains its commitment to the theoretically informed analysis of the realities of Africa's own cultural categories. Each issue contains five or six major articles, arranged thematically, extensive review essays and substantial book reviews. Special issues are frequent.[http://www.euppublishing.com/journal/afr]
