About the Journal

African Journal of Accounting, Finance and Banking Research (AJAFBR) is an annual, peer-reviewed research journal that provides a publication outlet for practical and theoretical issues related to Africa. This journal is interested in country or industry specific issues that relate to accounting, economics, finance and banking. As a result of the need for enhanced development in the African continent, special consideration will be given to papers that not only highlight problems but also proffer solutions and make targeted policy recommendations. This AJAFBR attempts to encourage scholars, academicians and professionals to engage more in Africa-related research and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas.  The journal publishes the highest quality articles in all business related disciplines especially in the areas of accounting, economics, finance and banking academic disciplines. While the management of this journal expects well researched and written articles to be submitted for review, no article will be rejected on the grounds of technicality. The journal welcomes manuscript submissions from scholars everywhere. Each manuscript is normally double peer reviewed and must not have been previously accepted for publication or review elsewhere. The Editor-In-Chief relies upon the evaluation reports provided by the reviewers, the originality and relevance of the ideas addressed in the article and the possible contribution to African development in deciding whether to accept the manuscript for publication.


Researchers, graduate students, bureaucrats, practitioners and all interested in the development of African.
