About the Journal


In adhering to the journal’s mission of fostering critical and applied African-centric scholars, IJEDA offers several creative approaches to supporting manuscript development. These include ongoing publication and scholarly writing workshops for potential authors and those with already developed ideas. All submissions require author positionality statements, linking personal and professional identities to research conducted, scholarship engaged, or otherwise to clarify author identities in relation to manuscript content. These will be separated from the review process, but will inform editorial review in accordance with IJEDA’s mission and purpose. 

 Peer Review Process

IJEDA uses a double blind peer review system to ensure the anonymity of both the author and the reviewer. Usually articles are sent to two reviewers, if there is a disagreement, a third reviewer is used. The final decision whether to publish any article remains with the Editor-in-Chief.

Publication Frequency

IJEDA uses a continious publishing model.

Articels will be published in an anual volume as soon as they are ready.
