Issue 31 of AJFAND is ready. We at the Secretariat have great expectations and anticipation for year 2010. During the last Foreword (issue 30), I appealed for support to host student interns. The response has been encouraging and has come in form of students applying for attachment, and a number of potential donors seeking details on how we can work together to achieve this goal. If this model works, it will fit squarely in AJFAND’s initial objective to operate as a capacity building undertaking to improve manuscript preparation, and analytical, reviewing and editing capabilities. The deliverables would be clearly visible. I continue to appeal for support in this area. Contact us, please, for discussions on how we can move forward together. Another request is for readers of AJFAND to send in comments which we can carry on the “comments” page of the journal. These constitute spontaneous, quick-to-read comments which we take fairly seriously. Issue 31 has a Guest Editor, Prof. Henry Laswai, a seasoned scholar of Sokoine University, Tanzania. We wish to foster a sense of ownership by inviting participation in various aspects of the journal. New ideas are welcome on how to increase not only the readership, but also contributions to the journal.
We wish you interesting reading.
In this issue, we have the following articles:
