ROAPE Journal finds new Open Access home with ScienceOpen 

The Review of African Political Economy (ROAPE) is a scholarly journal that serves as a critical platform for examining political, economic, and social issues across the African continent.  Since 1974, ROAPE has provided critical examinations of trends, issues, and social processes in Africa through a broadly materialist lens. ROAPE’s publications have played a crucial role in creating a significant platform that supports ongoing efforts for racial, gender, and economic equality in Africa. As the journal celebrates its 50th anniversary, we are delighted to announce that ROAPE is switching from a subscription-based model formerly hosted on the Taylor & Francis platform to complete Open Access now fully hosted and published on the ScienceOpen platform.
