African and Black Diaspora: An International Journal

31 December 2021

About the Journal

African and Black Diaspora: An International Journal (Routledge) is a multi-disciplinary peer-reviewed international journal that seeks to advance the analytical and interrogative discourse that constitutes the distinctive field of African diaspora studies in the production of knowledge by focusing on issues such as power, knowledge, gender, race and other forms of social identity. It seeks to encourage the study of the African diaspora through an inter-disciplinary and comparative framework that illuminates the state of the broad field in critical ways. The journal publishes research articles, commentaries and book reviews, with a mix of regular and special theme issues. 

The Editors of African and Black Diaspora recognise that reviewers provide a vital and important service that ensures the quality and integrity of published research. Reviewing is a reciprocal process, helping authors to improve and expand on their work, as well as raising reviewer awareness of new and emerging research. The journal is currently seeking to expand its roster of peer reviewers and we invite individuals who are working within a to express their interest in joining our international team of reviewees as a referee for submitted papers related to their specific areas of expertise.
