We are pleased to introduce six new additions to our portfolio of open-access AOSIS Scholarly Journals in 2023. We invite you to explore their websites and consider these platforms for your next manuscript submission.
The African Journal of Pentecostal Studies is an international, open access publication that covers a broad range of topics related to Pentecostalism, neo-Pentecostalism and related renewal movements in Africa and other parts of the world. It seeks to foster multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary scholarship in the academic study of Pentecostalism, emphasising the intersectionality of theology and practice within Pentecostal circles, denominations, non-denominational movements, and other ministries. The African Journal of Pentecostal Studies encourages critical reflection on contested theological and academic themes within Pentecostalism, as well as dialogue with diverse ecumenical theologies.

The African Journal of Creative Economy (AJCE) has an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary focus that includes the following fields: Cultural Economics, Creative Industries, Arts and Culture Management, and Cultural Studies and Cultural Policy. The journal’s focus is on researching and discussing theoretical and practical issues pertaining to the cultural and creative economy in Africa. Research from outside Africa will also be considered as long as it is relevant to the African creative economy in terms of policy lessons or comparative analysis. Read more.
Journal of Media and Rights
The Journal of Media and Rights (JMR) aims to provide an innovative and diverse platform for the presentation and discussion of original research linking media scholarship with rights-based scholarship. This unique linkage is explored in various sociopolitical and cultural contexts in the quest for intellectual understanding of the positive and/or negative impact that evolving media approaches have on the expression and realisation of rights. A core element of JMR is the exploration of rights (human or otherwise) via the close analysis of media texts such as films, television, radio, podcasts, and other forms of online media. Read more.

The journal focuses on pathophysiology, prevention, management, and advancing therapy for different patient populations with metabolic health issues, including obesity, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other conditions associated with insulin resistance and inflammation.

As the national examining body for medical and dental professions in South Africa, the CMSA is unique in that it embraces 29 constituent Colleges representing all disciplines of medicine and dentistry.

New Contree serves as a scholarly voice and platform for instilling and disseminating specific and comparative local and regional history debate in Africa and its value in broader (transnational contexts). New Contree’s intellectual repertoire compliments a rigorous theoretically reflexive social history in which inclusivity in reconstructing the past from ‘below’ (ordinary people’s voice, and acknowledging smaller community activities) and also from ‘above’ (be informed on related actions, for example, central authority, government and national figures) matters. Change occurs through the interaction of major decisive events and the rhythm of seemingly trivial, prosaic, and almost discreet courses of daily life. Read more.
