While MLA and APA documentation styles are recommended, authors are free to adopt the reference style appropriate to their discipline. In any case, authors are expected to indicate the reference method adopted.
Below are some basic guidelines:
• Articles should be limited to 6,000 words. Tables and diagrams should be used minimally.
• Each paper should contain an abstract of not more than two hundred and fifty words.
• Manuscripts should have a cover page indicating the title of the paper, author’s name, postal and e-mail address and contact phone number as well as institutional affiliation. The title and the abstract should appear on another page, and the main essay should start on the third page without the author’s personal details.
Please send an electronic copy of your article to firstname.lastname@example.org; and post two hard copies to: The Editor, OGIRISI: a new journal of African studies, Department of Philosophy, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Nigeria
