The African Journal of Non-Profit Higher Education (AJNPHE) publishes rigorous, peer-reviewed and open-access articles.

The AJNPHE focuses on cross- and interdisciplinary research relating to the not-for-profit sector of African higher education in particular, and of higher education in general.

The journal aims to advance an African voice in global scholarly discourses on educational theory and practice unique to the sector. Its mission is to strengthen non-profit higher education as a distinctive scholarly field in higher education studies. Therein the journal in particular, but not exclusively, wants to explore the intersecting themes of non-profit higher education, social justice and societal transformation.

The journal will publish high quality, peer reviewed research, using the open access model to increase the exchange of knowledge among and encourage collaboration between local South African, continental African, and international scholars elsewhere.

The journal will serve as and establish a new and unique record of scholarly activity in higher education scholarship hosted at Cornerstone Institute.

The categories of content to be published include research reports, articles, book reviews, interviews, editorials and conference proceedings, as well as others as may be required by content unique to a particular scholarly field and/or research programme.
