Publication Frequency:Quarterly

The aim of founding IGWEBUIKE: AN AFRICAN JOURNAL OF ARTS AND HUMANITIES is to make it a world class academic journal with a global brand that would thrive on standard, quality and originality. It is published twice a year with a maximum of ten (10) articles including book reviews in each volume. Articles are welcomed from any of the following areas: Anthropology, cross-cultural studies, education, ethics, history, international relations, law, linguistics, methodology, philosophy, political science, population Studies, psychology, sociology, social welfare, literature, performing arts (music, theatre & dance), religious studies, visual arts, women studies etc. It would be preferred if articles for publication address issues from an African perspective.

All manuscripts must be original (hence, not under consideration anywhere) and submitted to the editor in MS word format via e-mail: info@igwebuikejournal.com or ikee_mario@yahoo.com.  The entire work can range from two to fifty double-spaced pages with a concise title, abstract, and a standard scholarly citation: do not place page numbers or paper title (on each page) on the manuscript; articles (or parts of articles) in English and French will be considered. All submissions must list the author's current affiliation and contact points (location, e-mail address, etc.). Regarding style (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.), use what is standard in your area of study. Camera ready manuscripts will receive first preference in the publishing cycle. All manuscripts are peer-reviewed and those approved by the editorial board will be published free of any charges as quality and originality are the ONLY conditions for publication in this journal.

Generally, Editors should be able to reach a decision including recommending corrections if any or acceptance of any paper within two weeks of receipt which is communicated to the author subsequently. Authors are, therefore, advised to avoid needless correspondences. Contributors would receive a copy of the journal but additional copies may be obtained at the normal price. Copyright to articles published in the journal shall remain vested with the journal. All correspondences including subscription and sponsorship to the Editor via: info@igwebuikejournal.com or ikee_mario@yahoo.com.

All manuscripts must be submitted electronically through the e-mail to the editor at info@igwebuikejournal.com or ikee_mario@yahoo.com.
