CODESRIA Guide for Authors

Presentation and organisation

Scientific content of manuscript

To achieve its mission of promoting visibility and competitiveness for African scholarship informed by perspectives sympathetic with the predicaments facing the continent, CODESRIA has set up a rigorous peer-review system. All manuscripts sent out to peer-reviewers are accompanied by a letter inviting them to evaluate the scientific value of manuscripts, using the following criteria:

  • Importance of the subject matter

  • Originality of the approach

  • Soundness of the scholarship

  • Degree of interest to our readership

  • Clarity of the organisation

  • Strength of the argument

  • Writing style

Contributors are notified that: “narrative or descriptive articles lacking in analytical content are not likely to be accepted”. Please provide one of the following recommendations:

  • Publish as it stands

  • Publish with minor revisions

  • Resubmit/Requires major revisions (please select only if paper

has real promise).

  • Reject (please supply some comments which can be sent to the

author rather than a bare rejection)

  • Refer to a specialist

  • Refer to another journal (please make suggestions)
