Afrikanistik Online is a multilingual peer-review e-journal that represents
African Studies in the sense of Diedrich Westermann: The people are always
in the focus of research.
Afrikanistik Online is a scientific journal that makes use of the advantages
of the internet:
* multimedia based presentation
* short publication period.
The aim of the journal is to enhance international exchange and cooperation
between scholars of different Africa-related disciplines, e.g. anthropology,
theoretical and applied linguistics, literature, communication sciences.
Being an e-journal it offers new forms of scientific exchange by
discussion-fora and the possibility to comment on the contributions
directly. Links to full-text sources and open-URL offer new standards for
the presentation of results of research. Hereby Afrikanistik Online
transcends by far the potential of conventional print publications.
Open access allows for access to current research of high quality even under
conditions, where print publications are not easily available. This means a
step forward to the implementation of ITC in order to integrate structurally
disadvantaged persons and areas in the scholarly discourse.
