The Journal pursues a policy of double-blind peer-review. Papers may vary in length from 5000-7500 words. Papers outside this range may only be considered under special circumstances.

Papers are invited from the general academic, research and practitioner community in Africa and around the world; the journal will occasionally issue calls for papers along particular thematic lines or request peer commentaries on topical issues.
