Africa Journals Directory

This directory contains information about more than 1900 journals published in or about Africa in all disciplines.

The directory is searchable by journal title and country or language(s) of publication. One also can browse journals by subject. To search for a phrase of more than one word, enclose the search terms in quotation marks. To browse the full list of titles alphabetically, choose "Any category" as a subject category.

The record of each journal contains information that we have about sources of tables of contents, indexes, abstracts, and full text of articles for journals and also the website of the journal, if one exists. (Further information about the sources of some of this content is available on the Links page.) For journals that do not have websites, the directory record contains information about the journal publisher, address, ISSN number, and whether the journal is active or has ceased publication.

Much more information about African journals has become available on the Internet in recent years, and gradually this will increase. Therefore, you may wish to consult other websites on the Links page.

We welcome information about journals not in the directory or additions or corrections to the records that are included. Please send information to
