Electronic versions should be submitted as MS Word attachments. Please use the Harvard Reference System (Author-year: page) for bibliographic referencing in the text, e.g.:

As for democracy, the question being discussed in some Afro pessimistic hard-line circles is whether elections still matter in Africa (Mangu Mbata 2012: 24).

All notes must be kept to a minimum and appear at the end of the article before the list of references.
