The MIASA Publishing Workshop for African scholars, jointly organised by Africa Spectrum (published by the GIGA Institute for African Affairs) and the Contemporary Journal of African Studies (published by the Institute of African Studies at the University of Ghana), will take place virtually on 21 and 22 October 2021. The workshop will also benefit from collaboration with the African Studies Association of Africa.
Objectives and Workshop Programme
The publishing workshop is designed to provide African scholars with in-depth feedback on advanced research papers with the aim of facilitating their submission to Africa Spectrum, the Contemporary Journal of African Studies, or another suitable journal that centres on the study of Africa. Workshop mentoring will be provided by experienced editors and associate editors of Africa Spectrum and the Contemporary Journal of African Studies.
The editors will share their insights into editorial work to demystify the submission and review process of both journals and discuss publication strategies with the participants. The workshop will also enable participants to reflect on, discuss, and rethink imbalances in academic knowledge production on Africa. The two-day programme will combine reflections and plenary discussions with one-on-one feedback and mentoring.
To facilitate participation in the publishing workshop, successful applicants can be reimbursed for costs for internet access for the duration of the workshop.

The application deadline is 15 July 2021. Successful applicants will be notified in early September. Applicants should have an advanced research paper already composed.
