The Australasian Review of African Studies (ARAS) aims to publish relevant and timely reviews of books dealing with various African Studies issues. However, in submitting book reviews it is important for reviewers to be aware of not only the journal’s style of citations, but also its style guidelines for the writing of book reviews. Read the Guidelines Here.
While some journals aim for publishing largely descriptive reviews which serve to inform the reader about the content of the book and its main ideas, ARAS does not. Therefore, what we are looking for is:
Publishing critical and inquisitive book reviews is an intellectually rewarding endeavour, and more importantly the state of academic inquiry and knowledge in general progresses through the process of discussion and argument, and not regurgitation.
The journal welcomes unsolicited reviews, and for all book review related queries please contact email@example.com.
ARAS is published in June and December each year. Articles can be submitted anytime. Book reviews, news and opinion pieces should be submitted by March 15th or September 15th.
