Guidelines for Reviewers

The AASR e-Journal is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal for the academic study of the religions of Africa and the African Diaspora. It will serve primarily as an interdisciplinary journal in which AASR members, but also non-AASR-members, publish the outcomes of their original research on the religions of Africa and the African Diaspora.

It will cover the wide range of religious traditions that were founded, were or are found, and exist and operate in Africa and the African Diaspora; and topics useful to scholars involved in the academic study of religions in Africa and the Africa Diaspora, and to a wider readership of academics in the general study of religions.

AASR e-Journal shall be published as electronic issues only, with up to two (2) issues per year. The first issue was published in August 2015 (1.1). Articles will be published in English only in the first instance, but in future, if the number of Francophone AASR members would expand significantly, articles will also be published in French. AASR e-Journal will be incorporated into the AASR website and be posted in its public part in order that it, as an open access journal, it will be accessible to the widest academic and general public. AASR e-Journal will be administered on behalf of the AASR by the following Editorial Management Board and International Advisory Board:
