AFRICANUS is a journal for the discipline of development studies. It is subject to a blind peer-review process and it is published by Unisa Press at the University of South Africa (Unisa). It is published two times a year in two issues. AFRICANUS seeks to publish high scholarly works that reflect scientific research, practice and theory. In this regard, the Journal aims to be a conduit between the academic debates on one side and the practice of development on the other side. Contributors are strongly urged to reflect on these three areas (research, practice and theory) as found and applied in the developing world. There are no fees payable. Furthermore, AFRICANUS is based on the National Code of Best Practice in Editorial Discretion and Peer Review for South African Scholarly Journals available at www.assaf.org.za.
Please prepare your manuscript for submission to the AFRICANUS in accordance with the guidelines below.
If your manuscript does not follow these requirements, we may return it to you and ask you to modify it accordingly before we send it out for review. E-mail submissions should be clearly marked ‘SUBMISSION’ in the subject header.

Commonwealth Youth and Development
Commonwealth Youth and Development was first published in 2003. It is a multidisciplinary biannual publication that seeks to promote understanding of, and impetus for, the empowerment of youth that will enable them to play a crucial and constructive role in the development of their communities. It recognises the importance of youth and youth workers in developing countries and seeks to promote the professionalisation of youth work.
The journal publishes research and writing by academics and practitioners working in the field of youth and development, providing a platform for rigorous debate about policies, programmes and processes. Contributions should focus on the developing world and may have an international, regional or national focus. The journal is aimed at students, academics, practitioners and policy makers and welcomes contributions in the form of research findings, work-in-progress, notes from the field, case studies, interviews and book reviews. Comparative studies that will inform the development actions of countries of the Commonwealth are encouraged.
