Editorial and Submission Policy

ỌfỌ: Journal of Transatlantic Studies is a peer reviewed scholarly journal published twice a year. ỌfỌ accepts original contributions devoted to Transatalantic, African, African Diaspora, and related subjects. Its interdisciplinary approach offers readers a critical view of the socioeconomic, political, and cultural life of the Africans and their relationship with the African Diaspora and the Atlantic World. It emphasizes original research, fresh conceptualization, and new view points on a variety of topics relating to aspects of the history, literature, politics, philosophy, folklore, culture, and economy of African societies, and broader African Diaspora.

Submissions may include scholarly articles, commentaries, review articles, film and book reviews. Manuscripts must be written in English and must not be more than 30 pages, clearly typed with Microsoft Word Times New Roman 12 points font size, and double-spaced with one-inch margin on all sides.  Articles should include a brief abstract, and a short biography with author's full name, title, current affiliation, a brief description of relevant publications, and full postal address/phone/fax/email details of author(s).

Authors are asked to strictly limit their use of underlining and bolding. Tables should be kept to a minimum and should be typed on separate sheets and their position indicated by a marginal note in the text. All tables should indicate their source(s) typed below the tables and submitted in grayscale (black and white) in .gif or .jpg format. Diagrams and photographs or 'Figures' as they are known generally, should be referred to as such in the manuscript and numbered consecutively.

All submissions accepted for consideration will be evaluated anonymously by at least two external peer reviewers. Submissions for consideration must be original work that have not been published previously and are currently not being reviewed by any other publication outlet.

ỌfỌ uses the Chicago Manual of Style 15th Edition. All endnotes must be inserted and numbered automatically as generated by a word processor program such as Microsoft Word. They are placed at the end of the documents as Notes.  Do not insert endnotes and numbers manually.
