About the Journal

PUNDUTSO: Journal of Trans4mative Thought and Praxis (PJTTP) is a multi- and trans-disciplinary on-line peer-reviewed scholarly journal devoted to critical thought, intellectual research synthesis, leading to innovative research and innovation grounded in African experience, philosophy and praxis. The goal of the journal is to build a robust trans-disciplinary and transnational community of committed researchers, theorists and practitioners who are capable of multi-faceted scholarly engagements, generative dialogue, drawing on indigenous as well as exogenous knowledge, interrogating as well as addressing issues and problems in communities of the continent and the global world as they emerge.

Focus of the Journal

Pundutso: Journal of Trans4mative Thought and Praxis (PJTTP) publishes work that presents original critical research, innovative research, theory and methods that add value to a body of research, emphasise co-creation of knowledge, guide future research, explore theories, invite generative dialogue, introduce research reviews, generate new insights, and provide new Afro-centered epistemologies, concepts and terminologies. Depending on the nature of the social research with a view to innovation, the paper should generate new insights, break new grounds or fill in gaps in theory or practice and in a manner that allows space for further research that intellectually engage scholars, researchers, students and other stakeholders with interest in researches grounded in African experience, philosophy and praxis. Such research should also serve to contribute towards a newly integral kind of knowledge and value creating organisation, or indeed Communiversity”, out of Africa.
