This is an open invitation to all prospective authors and researchers to submit their latest manuscripts towards the open access Journal of Local Government Research and Innovation (JOLGRI).
The Journal of Local Government Research and Innovation (JOLGRI) seeks to publish and foster knowledge development in educational, epistemological and practice advancements within local government that will result in alternative models practised in local government service delivery and governance. The journal has a rigorous, double-blind peer-review process and a rolling publication system, which encourages prompt publication of accepted papers. JOLGRI publishes research articles, notes, conceptual reviews and essays as well as practitioner-focused papers. Manuscripts are welcome from South Africa, Africa and across the globe.
The journal is DHET accredited because it is listed on the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) – DHET Approved Index from 2021.
Submissions can be submitted online at jolgri.org. Please refer to the submissions procedure when submitting your original manuscripts. The author guidelines include information about the types of articles received for publication and preparing a manuscript for submission. Other relevant information about the journal’s policies and the reviewing process can be found under the about section.
JOLGRI has a sponsorship agreement with the University of Fort Hare for the purpose of funding qualifying manuscripts’ APC fees. This funding is allocated to published articles, at the point of acceptance, which means the limits of the sponsorship can be reached, whereafter authors will be required to pay an APC fee to cover the full production costs of their article. The non-sponsored APC fee shall be ZAR1223.00 (excl. VAT) per A4 output page in PDF format. This APC is valid for the current calendar year and may be changed at any time at the sole discretion of the publisher. To find out more about the article processing charges, please visit jolgri.org.
