Dear authors,

Since 2023, the journal has been going through a restructuring process, and, unfortunately, this has impacted the reviewing and editing of all manuscript submissions. Indeed, we needed to focus our efforts on finding sustainable solutions for our open-access project. Today, we are happy to inform you that the African Cities Journal has found the necessary support to fulfil its mission to promote the free dissemination of scientific knowledge on the most relevant challenges of African cities.

Given the important restructuring that has taken place, we are resetting the submission process. All manuscripts submitted before 20 May 2024 need to be resubmitted for review. We will discard any submissions made before the date mentioned above – except for papers that have already been reviewed (having already had at least 1 round of peer review). We will contact these authors individually.

Therefore, if you still wish for your manuscript to be considered for publication, kindly resubmit it on our platform. If you do not resubmit your manuscript, we will consider as if it had not been submitted, thus allowing you to submit it elsewhere.

For any further details, you may contact us on:

We apologise for this inconvenience and thank you for your kind comprehension.

Best wishes,

The editorial team
