This is a celebratory publication since it is the first one after SCOPUS has accepted to index the journal of African Films and Diaspora Studies (JAFDIS) in the month of September 2021, which we set up in 2018. The Editorial Board and its support staff celebrate with all those authors whose articles has been accepted and published like, an examination on sexual harassment activities in the South African professional performing arts industry, South African discourse on health communication: assessing the intersection of HIV/AIDS messages; social media & television program and many more as listed on the publication.
Favour seems to have followed JAFDIS since its debut in 2018. When it first started it began as a bi-annual publication (twice a year) but became triennial (three times a year) after only one year (typically it takes us years to nurture a journal to move up from one frequency to another). When we first submitted the journal to SCOPUS for evaluation, it was rejected but surprisingly given only one year to address identified weaknesses before re-submission (usually when a journal submitted to SCOPUS for evaluation is rejected, the journal is given 2-5 years waiting period before re-submission). Again while it typically takes SCOPUS six months or more to evaluate a journal (or a re-submission after a rejection), the decision on JAFDIS came less than a month of being re-submitted, proud words from our publisher ‘Adonis & Abbey Publishers Ltd.
As the current Editorial Board, we congratulate the journal’s founding editor, Professor Françoise Ugochukwu (2018-2019); the current contributors, reviewers, the Virtual Editorial Assistant attached to the journal and all associated with it. This is certainly a big feat for a journal that was only set up in 2018!
