Manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Higher Education in Africa should be typed doublespaced. Electronic versions should be submitted as MS Word or RTF attachments by email or on cd-rom. Avoid excessive formatting of the text. Camera ready copies of maps, charts graphs are required as well as the data used in plotting the charts and graphs.

Please use the Havard Reference System (author–date) for referencing, e.g.:

It is interesting to note that… the word for ‘tribe’ does not exist in indigenous languages of South Africa (Mafeje 1975:254).

It is essential that the references section lists every work cited by you in the text.

An abstract of 150 to 200 words, stating the main research problem, major findings and conclusions should be sent with the articles for translation into English or French. Articles that do not follow this format will have their processing delayed.

Authors should indicate their full name, address (including e-mail contact), academic status and current institutional affiliation.

CODESRIA adopts the “blind” peer review system for evaluation and manuscripts not accepted for publication will not be returned to authors.

Articles submitted to the JHEA should be original contributions and should not be under consideration by another journal at the same time.

Authors are entitled to two complimentary copies of the issue in which their articles appear and a pdf copy of the article for either printing or distribution.
