SCOLMA membership rates – 2022

Following on from approval at the June 2021 Annual General Meeting and the November 2021 General Meeting, two major changes to the SCOLMA organisation will be implemented from 2022.

African Research and Documentation

SCOLMA and the International African Institute (IAI) have agreed a merger between their two journals African Research and Documentation (ARD) and Africa Bibliography (AB), the new title to be called Africa Bibliography, Research and Documentation (ABRD). The journal will be published annually, with the ability to publish articles online ahead of print throughout the year. Further details of the merged journal will appear on the Cambridge University Press (CUP) website who publish on behalf of IAI. As part of the agreement with IAI and CUP all back issues of ARD will be digitised.

Membership

From 2022 SCOLMA will become an individual membership organisation only. With the journal becoming an annual issue, this change is reflected in reduced costs from 2021 subscription prices.
