Special issue call for papers from Business and Economic Quarterly.

Deadline for submissions: 31st December 2018.

We are inviting interested authors to submit manuscripts for consideration for a special issue of the Business and Economic Quarterly. The purpose of this issue is to advance and embrace the inherent possibilities emerging from African economies.  With this call, we seek contributions that analyze and articulate either conceptually, empirically or theoretically some of the key issues emanating from African countries. Against this backdrop, this special issue of Business and Economic Quarterly endeavors, for the very first time, to bring together academic and practitioner perspectives on African economies.

Submissions to the journal are made here: Submissions
