Are you interested in joining our scholarly community? Does the research field of literacy interest you?
We call all prospective researchers and authors to submit their manuscripts towards the open access journal, Reading & Writing. This peer reviewed inter-disciplinary and inter-professional scholarly journal explores how literacy is defined, enacted, and promoted in a range of institutional, socio-cultural, and disciplinary contexts, particularly within Africa and other developing countries. Reading & Writing publishes original articles that provoke debate, explores issues, and posit solutions about literacy interventions, practices, and education. It focusses on and relates to transnational and translocal literacies associated with immigrants and mobile people in African settings. The aim is to design literacy practices in education to stimulate community-based socio-economic transformation and development in Africa. The journal offers the breadth of outlook to promote interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches that can stretch and invigorate our sense of what concepts and approaches are productive in the field of literacy education.
The journal has a double-blinded peer review process. Manuscripts are initially examined by editorial staff and are sent by the Editor-in-Chief to two expert independent reviewers, either directly or by a Section Editor. Read our full peer review process.
