Ecquid Novi: African Journalism Studies (ENAJS) is the premier international peer-reviewed journal for the critical analysis of journalism scholarship, education and practice in all its facets in Africa. The purpose of the journal is to foster a better understanding of journalism, media studies, and mass communication as research areas in the comparative context of Africa and the Global South, and to build links between these academic fields and the media professions. The journal's focus is on Africa, but its academic interest and scope is transnational. Articles dealing with the intersections between journalism, politics, culture and society in Africa are especially invited. Areas of focus may include, but are not limited to: theories of news and news representation; journalism education and research; journalism and globalization; development journalism and social change; journalism ethics; constructions of gender, 'race' and ethnicity in the news; journalism and new media; journalism and regulation; journalism and politics; and the relationship between journalism, culture and society. Comparative studies of journalism in other regions of the South that have an explicit bearing on African journalism will also be considered. Although its focus is on journalism studies, the journal's comparative and interdisciplinary approach is informed by the related fields of cultural and media studies, communication studies, African studies, politics, and sociology. The journal is therefore also likely to be of interest to scholars working in these fields.
