Call for Papers

Méthod(e)s: African Review of Social Sciences Methodology is a bilingual, international multidisciplinary journal publishing articles on social sciences research methodology in English and French. It is affiliated with the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA).

The journal provides a forum to discuss various aspects of social science research and epistemology as they apply to historical contexts and engages in current debates on social sciences methodology. Méthod(e)s: African Review of Social Sciences Methodology examines the theoretical foundations and methodological problems encountered in the practical exercise of the social sciences in Africa as part of the global South (both in general and in individual countries) and serves as an international medium for the publication of social research methodology across a wide range of social sciences disciplines, historical contexts and terrains.

The journal seeks articles focusing on on-going and emerging methodological debates spanning a variety of approaches - both qualitative and quantitative - including mixed and comparative methods, as they relate to philosophical, theoretical, ethical, political, historical and practical issues.
