As of today, the online submission system for the Journal of African Trade (JAT) is live and open for submissions. JAT is owned by the African Export-Import Bank and seeks to publish articles that test, advance and develop models, frameworks and concepts in the broad areas of international trade and trade finance, economic growth and development, and international finance. The journal transferred to Atlantis Press from its previous publisher Elsevier at the beginning of this year and during a short interim period it was only possible to submit articles to JAT via email. However, from this moment onwards new submissions can only proceed through the Editorial Manager online submission system which can be accessed at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jaft/default.aspx. Note that the complete archive of JAT back to volume 1 is now also available on the Atlantis Press platform and can be found on the journal's homepage at https://www.atlantis-press.com/journals/jat

The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) has signed an agreement with Atlantis Press to provide publishing services for the Journal of African Trade (JAT). Afreximbank launched JAT in 2014 with the aim to publish articles that test, advance and develop models, frameworks and concepts in the broad areas of international trade and trade finance, economic growth and development, and international finance, and to facilitate a greater understanding of the role of trade and trade-related issues in the process of economic development in Africa. The journal moves from its current publisher Elsevier and will continue to appear semi-annually as a fully Open Access publication. The first 2019 issue is expected to appear in June and the online system for new submissions is expected to open shortly.
