This scholarly journal seeks to understand how African cultures and societies shape and are shaped by historical and current diasporic and transnational movements. Contrary to assuming Africa as a bounded geographical entity and the African diaspora as a single imagined community the journal charts uncovered territories and entangled histories of plural diasporas and transnational movements from to and within Africa. These include but are not limited to the Transatlantic the Indian Ocean the Middle East as well as Europe and the former socialist countries of the European continent. By focusing on when and how diasporas are produced and lived diasporic connections are claimed and transnational engagements evolve the journal fosters a view on the ways in which these movements are navigated by people networks communities and states in historical political and sociocultural terms. This journal pursues placing at the centre of its attention the diasporians and migrants own experiences and expressions of these interlocking forms of mobility. Providing an academic context for the interpolation of the ways in which diasporic and transnational movements reinforce negotiate or negate one another forms the core of the interdisciplinary approach this journal fosters. The ways in which the diversity of these flows subsequently produce mediations of contact contest or conflict visvis the social fabric of sending and receiving situations and within transnational networks is elementary to the critical social theory the journals academic debate is promoting. Issues of boundary making and crossing belonging and citizenship kinship and family configurations religious ritual and symbolism popular expressions and public culture economic initiative and political agency form the heart of the diversity of these mediations.

A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.
