Special Issue: Entrepreneurship in Africa

The Africa Journal of Management  presents a special issue on “Entrepreneurship in Africa: Opportunities for both Africa and Entrepreneurship Research.” published in Volume 3, Issue 1, 2017.

The Special Issue focuses on the theme of the third Biennial Africa Academy of Management (AFAM) conference which was held from 5 to 10 January 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya and is Guest Edited by Moses Acquaah and Moses N. Kiggundu. According to the Editors “for the past decade, the African continent has been experiencing considerable economic growth and this is projected to continue, and even outpace other regions in the world.” Therefore, the theme of the conference focused on the importance of managing Africa’s future. 

The papers in the Special Issue are divided into two parts: (1) Speeches and experiences of the organizers and the host of the third Biennial AFAM Conference; and (2) Best Papers from the conference. 

The topics of the research papers cover a broad spectrum of management issues that have the potential to affect the development of sustainable and world-class businesses, and enhance the management of the African continent for future generations. 

The Guest Editors’ introduction paper, “Prospects and Challenges in Managing Africa’s Future: An Introduction” can be read at no charge here


Excellent attention by editor-in-chief; very good work of reviewers; good time for review and processing.

The biggest development in the history of Quaestiones Mathematicae was the association with NISC and to have the journal running in a very stable way without severe financial concerns.
- Barry Green, QM Editor
Since 1995, NISC has systematically built up competence and the necessary capacity in all aspects of publishing high-level research journals, with the professionalism needed to flourish in the increasingly competitive world of international research publications. No other publisher in South Africa commands the necessary technical skills, experience, competence, enthusiasm and resources to the same degree as NISC, in my view.
- Graham Baker, Editor of the South African Journal of Science (1973-2008)
The editorial experience was excellent: the reviewers were timely and their feedback was generative. The co-editor of the special issue was proactive about communicating information to me. In latter stages, the staff that shepherded the essay through the copy-editing stages was also very helpful and in good contact.

It has been an enriching experience working with such enthusiastic and professional people at NISC who have become more friends than business partners over the years.
