About the Journal

About the Africana Studies Review 

The Africana Studies Review (ASR) is an annual publication of the Center for African and African American Studies at Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO), in collaboration with the Office of Title III Program.  

 The journal solicits research across the entire range of topics encompassing the domain of African and African American Studies (broadly construed). ASR particularly welcomes manuscripts on critical issues in black history, politics, law, education, religion, social organization, economics, creative production, psychology, and sociology, as well as empirical and theoretical papers that advance social scientific research on the global experience of African people.  

 ASR is a methodologically, multidisciplinary journal that welcomes research on important issues that transcend the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines. It therefore invites interdisciplinary scholarship and commentaries that challenge the paradigms of single traditional disciplines. Work may take the form of an article, essay, or book review. For book reviews, ASR seeks reviews that assess a manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as locating it within the current field of scholarship. 

Submission Guidelines 
ASR only considers papers not under review or previously published elsewhere. All works are subject to peer review and should conform to the latest American Psychological Association (APA) format. 

The views and opinions expressed in the Africana Studies Review are solely those of the authors and do not represent the views of the Center for African and African American Studies, Southern University at New Orleans, or the editorial board.
