THE CONVERSATION AFRICA INVITES ACADEMIC AND RESEARCH FACULTY TO SUBMIT ARTICLES

Academic and research faculty members are invited to submit articles for consideration for publication by The Conversation Africa. Please read more below about how The Conversation Africa  works with Researchers and Academics based in African Universities.

WHAT IS THE CONVERSATION AFRICA?

The Conversation Africa is a news and analysis website which is a collaboration between journalists and academics. Part of an international network, The Conversation Africa is dedicated to transforming knowledge from universities and research institutions into concise, readable articles. It attracts over 200 000 readers to its website, and under Creative Commons licence, articles are free republish giving reaching close to excess of 1.3 million reads monthly, with pieces that originally ran in The Conversation also appearing in Time, Quartz, The Guardian, the Mail & Guardian, the Daily Nation, The Standard, All Africa, Timeslive, and many other publishing outlets on the continent and around the world. The Conversation Africa covers Arts and Culture, Business and Economy, Education, Energy and Environment, Health and Medicine, Politics and Society and Science and Technology. Articles are either commissioned by editors, or pitched by academics, and might be analysis around a news event, an article about the academic’s latest research or analysis of research in the public domain, among others. These articles are generally 800 words long. Academics work with the editors to craft their pieces, but academics maintain final control over the final article.

WHO CAN CONTRIBUTE AN ARTICLE?

Authors must be currently affiliated with a university or an approved research institution and have either a PhD or be a recognised expert teaching in the subject on which they are writing. The Conversation doesn’t publish undergraduate students, and only use PhD candidates where they have done research. In this case, a supervisor or another senior as a co-author is often required.
