Islamic Africa is a new peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal published online by Northwestern University Press in collaboration with the Institute for the Study of Islamic Thought in Africa (ISITA) at the Program of African Studies of Northwestern University. Incorporating the journal Sudanic Africa and retaining its focus on historical sources, bibliographies, and methodology, Islamic Africa covers the field of Islam in Africa broadly understood to include the social sciences and humanities. The new journal seeks to promote the scholarly interaction among Africa-based scholars and those located institutionally outside the continent. The first issue appeared in Spring 2010.
Islamic Africa invites scholars to submit essays, or short pieces, notices, and reports on research in progress to be considered for publication. Such submissions should make original contributions to knowledge. The material must not have been previously published, or be currently under review elsewhere.
Submissions should be sent electronically in both Microsoft Word and PDF formats to: Lauren Pretnar, Managing Editor,Islamic Africa, firstname.lastname@example.org .
