Long abstract:

A round-table conversation on academic publishing in African Studies with the editors of the Journal of African History and other leading journals in the field. The round-table will address the intellectual and commercial environment for Africanist publishing, issues of open access, and how it is that editors make their decisions on individual manuscripts, as well as other topics. Such discussions are a regular part of the US-based ASA meetings, and they have proven useful for scholars of all ranks. Participants: Keith Breckenridge and Gregory Mann (Journal of African History), Deborah James (Africa), Max Bolt (Journal of Southern African Studies), Sandrine Perrot and Didier P├ęclard (Politique Africaine), Benjamin Lawrance (African Studies Review)
