International Journal of Africana Studies
The International Journal of Africana Studies welcomes essays presenting original scholarship that systematically examines aspects of the past and present experiences, characteristics, achievements, issues, and concerns of people of African descent worldwide. Each submission must be saved as a Microsoft Word file and sent electronically, as an attachment, to IJAS@ncbsonline.org. An essay also may be sent via postal mail to Bertis English, Editor, International Journal of Africana Studies, 210 G. W. Trenholm Hall, Alabama State University, 915 South Jackson Street, Montgomery, Alabama, 36104, USA. However, the service of an outside peer reviewer will not be secured until the editor receives the electronic submission. A hard copy not accepted for publication will be returned to its author only if a self-addressed and properly stamped envelope is provided in the original parcel.

Potential articles should be doubled spaced and not exceed thirty pages including footnotes, tables, and references. Each author’s name, academic or professional affiliation, rank or title, institution or organization, electronic-mail address, and telephone number should appear on a title or cover page. No identifying information of an author should appear anywhere else on a manuscript. The Turabian approach to citing sources, as presented in the sixteenth edition of the Chicago Manual of Style (2010), is preferred. However, an author may use the current scheme of the Modern Language Association or the American Psychological Association. All footnotes must be textual rather than composed using the automatic-footnoting feature of Microsoft. Use Times New Roman, Calibri or Courier font and apply one-inch margins to the whole document. Pictures, maps, and other illustrations should not be embedded in the main text. Work published previously or that is being considered for publication in another journal, book, or online will not be accepted. Any other editorial matter should be addressed to the editor: Benglish@alasu.edu or 334.229.4368.
