Majority World scholars face obstacles and uncertainty in publishing academic articles, whilst Minority World journal editors lack full awareness of the constraints they work under. To address these issues, these workshops will bring together the editors of the Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History, Journal of African History, and South Asian Studies with academics and early-career researchers working on colonial and post-colonial history, from the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia. These regions share challenges relating to knowledge gaps, English as an Additional Language, and access to support networks. A series of workshops will: enhance early-career researchers’ understandings of the process of submission, peer review and publication; build their capacity in crafting articles, special issues, and special features; increase their participation in international funding opportunities; and facilitate the formation of new networks of understanding, mutual support and assistance between and within the UK and ODA contexts.
