The Africa Journal Academy builds on writing workshops pioneered by the ASAUK and IAI, which were designed to meet a real and expressed need. African scholars in the humanities and social sciences have for decades been concerned about the barriers they face in getting their work published in leading international journals. At the same time, we have seen the establishment of significant Africa-based conference series (EALCS, ASAA and LSA) and there is a growing impetus to build and strengthen the rapidly growing field of Africa-based scholarly journals. The Africa Journal Academy aims to contribute to ongoing initiatives to build networks and strengthen and expand Africa's knowledge base.
