Canadian Journal of African Studies (CJAS) is the official publication of the Canadian Association of African Studies (CAAS). Launched in 1967, it is a bilingual multidisciplinary journal committed to facilitating the dissemination of research by Africanist scholars working in Canada, Africa, and elsewhere.
CJAS publishes peer reviewed articles in the areas of anthropology / ethnography, political science, history, sociology, literature, human geography, and development. In addition to original research papers, the journal publishes Commentaries that cover current issues. The book review and review essay section provides critiques of recent books and reports on Africa in general and on individual countries.
In conjunction with CAAS, CJAS is actively seeking to further diversify the journal’s content and operations, both to reflect CAAS’s membership and to engage more closely with knowledge production from the continent that is the journal’s focus. The journal remains committed to its mandate to publish scholarship in both English and French.W
