• African Thought: A Journal of Afro-centric Knowledge

    African Thought: A Journal of Afro-centric Knowledge is a South African based journal in the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. This journal publishes articles that are mainly on African indigenous knowledge systems from a multidisciplinary perspective as well as from a comparative perspective with other world knowledge systems. In its orientation, the journal is multidisciplinary as it encourages scholarly reflection on African indigenous knowledge systems across the disciplines. As a journal that is primarily concerned with African indigenous knowledge systems, it also encourages scholarly reflection on the application of these indigenous knowledge systems in various spheres of life, e.g. African politics, religion, theology, ethics, psychology, philosophy, economics, history, sociology, anthropology, science, medicine, ecological conservation, the natural environment, etc. This journal has been envisaged as a forum on which to revisit the promotion of Afro-centric knowledge, an area of study which has been neglected for so long in many scholarly discourses in Africa and about Africa. Whilst the knowledge that has been disseminated and taught at African tertiary institutions has been largely Western oriented or Eurocentric, this journal aims to correct this discrepancy by giving an opportunity for a direct scholarly reflection on the advancement of Afro-centric knowledge.

  • Journal of Education

    The focus of the Journal of Education is on all levels, stages and processes of education (e.g. formal, informal, non-formal, early childhood, lifelong, schooling, adult education, vocational education and training, higher education). It is a double-blind peer-reviewed, open access publication of original research and writing on all disciplines within the field of education.

    While the Journal considers articles from all disciplines within the field of education, preference will be given articles with a broader scope rather than a very narrow focus.
