Aims and Scope

The Journal of African Media Studies (JAMS) is an interdisciplinary journal that provides a forum for debate on the historical and contemporary aspects of media and communication in Africa. It hereby aims to contribute to the on-going re-positioning of media and cultural studies outside the Anglo-American axis. JAMS interprets media in a broad sense, incorporating not only formal media such as radio, television, print, internet and mobile telephony but also considers articles on 'informal', 'small' or 'indigenous' media such as music, jokes and theatre.

Call for Papers

JAMS invites contributions from junior and senior researchers, scholars and professionals from around the world, and particularly from the African continent. JAMS welcomes articles that discuss the relation of different media and forms of communication to the broader social, economic, historical and political context in Africa. JAMS has a preference for empirical work that is well grounded in theoretical debates and academic literature, and encourages contributors to include images, photographs or other graphics.

JAMS is published three times a year. All articles published in JAMS are subjected to a blind peer-reviewing process and should not normally exceed 6,000 words in length. Book and film reviews should not be longer than 1,000 words. All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications. Articles should follow both JAMS and Intellect submission guidelines for contributors.

Manuscripts can be e-mailed to the editors.

All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
