New Journal of Higher Education in Africa

A new journal on higher education in Africa is to be launched as a joint collaborative effort between the Center for International Higher Education, Boston College (USA) and the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa, CODESRIA (Senegal). The Journal will have joint editorship and joint ownership with clearly designated tasks of the two collaborating institutions. The Journal will have three levels of management: editorial team, editorial and advisory boards.

Four US partner institutions - the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation of New York - have agreed to support the launching of the Journal of Higher Education in Africa. The journal concept has been developed in collaboration with a number of African institutions, that include the Association of African Universities, AAU (Ghana), Educational Policy Unit of the University of Western Cape (South Africa), UN-Economic Commission for Africa, UN-ECA (Ethiopia), and the Organization for Social Science Research in East and Central Africa, OSSREA (Ethiopia).

The editors will soon be soliciting articles, inviting prospective board members, and establishing the style and format of the Journal. They are optimistic that the journal will emerge as a very important forum to debate and deliberate on major higher education issues on the continent. They plan to work with the community of African higher education experts, policy makers, and scholars to use the journal as a forum to engage the major higher education issues that affect the continent.

The Journal will be distributed to the libraries of African higher education institutions without cost.
