The Journal welcomes submissions of original manuscripts from researchers anywhere in the world, relating to all topics falling within the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Manuscripts should not normally have previously appeared in print, nor should they have been simultaneously submitted for review to other journals. Double-spaced manuscripts may be submitted at any time and should not exceed 6000 words in length, including a 100-word abstract. Articles must be written in English; quotations of works written in other languages should be given in English with the original in parentheses.

A separate page should contain the article title and the author’s name and address. The author’s name should not appear on the manuscript itself. Since manuscripts are submitted for blind review, all identifying information should be removed from the body of the paper to protect anonymity.

Authors of papers accepted for publication will be required to submit the final version of their papers both in hard copy and on disk. References should follow the following style: Mlacha, S (1996) “Women’s Images in Kiswahili Poetry and Taarab”. In Gender Relations and Womens Images in the Media. Ed. Mbilinyi, D. and Omari, C.
