YALJOD Young African Leaders Journal of Development

The Young African Leaders Journal of Development (YALJOD) is a biennial journal and an official publication of the Young African Leaders Forum (YALF). It was established in 2015 to host scholarly analysis and competing viewpoints about the development of Africa; and it’s multidisciplinary approach makes it more formidable.
YALJOD accepts papers from varied disciplinary areas — including Social Sciences, Physical Sciences and Humanities — that show direct relevance to the development of Africa. It publishes researches understood as the social, economic, political, cultural and technological processes of change in Africa.


The intended audience of the journal remains the entire African people. Howbeit, for effectiveness, special emphasis is given to African leadership operators, development academics, researchers and youths — who appear to be the next African leaders.


YALJOD is exceptional and stands out because of our implementation policy. We do not merely explain tangible solutions to African problems in our journal; we act to execute these solutions such that our research findings may be beneficial to African people. In this sense, ideal solutions to Africa’s development challenges are not only theoritical; they are practically implemented to have the right impact on Africans.
We often invite articles from across Africa, but priority is given to papers which are African development-oriented.
