Scholarly Journals in Africology

Itibari M. Zulu's picture

I recently wrote “Scholarly Journals in Africology: An Introductory Descriptive Review” in Africology: The Journal of Pan African Studies (vol.10, no.3, May 2017, www.jpanafrican.org), a descriptive review of fifty peer-reviewed journals from online content provided in relationship to Africology (i.e., African Diaspora Studies, African Studies, Africana Studies, African American Studies, Afro-American Studies, Black Studies, Pan African Studies, etc.) via their public affirmations of the journals reviewed. The review is designed to entertain the idea of criteria for quality journals in Africology. Should such an effort be advanced, or should the journals in question operate in a laissez faire fashion?
