We seek to publish scholarship that goes beyond the research report stage of conveying scientific findings and providing recommendations. We are interested particularly in papers that inspire or propose radical, alternative paradigmatic shifts in the standard assumptions and methodologies involved in knowledge production about Africa. Utafiti is not bound by narrow confines of disciplines and its format does not follow the standard research report framework. The journal publishes in English, French and Kiswahili.
