It is a project of the Africa Centre for Philanthropy and Social Investment at the Wits Business School in South Africa with wider perspectives. It is aimed at the academic and research communities. It explores the emergent and developing field of philanthropy and social investment in Africa and beyond.

 

It is a response to both the research gap in the area as well as lack of a journal dedicated to this field of knowledge and practice. As a result, the journal combines full length academic articles and empirical experiences from practitioners, most of whom have vast knowledge which is seldom documented. The journal is also a bridge between  theory and of practice both in the philanthropic and private sector spheres.

 

It is an essential resource for academics, researchers, policy makers and practitioners in the fields of philanthropy and social investment.  In short, the journal will fill a growing need to develop the international knowledge infrastructure for rapidly expanding interest in this field of human behaviour.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1544573175746{padding-top: 5% !important;padding-right: 5% !important;padding-bottom: 5% !important;padding-left: 5% !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}”]

Background

 

The study of philanthropy in Africa and other continents outside of Euro-America is in a nascent stage. It has been described by many writers as emergent. Although there is now an increase in research and writings on philanthropy across the globe as well as in Africa and African philanthropy in particular, there is however still little academic research and publications in this field.  It was due to this lack of dedicated academic focus on philanthropy in Africa that the Wits Business School introduced a Chair in African Philanthropy, which will be located within a new academic Centre. The gaps to be filled include but are not limited to lack of teaching, research and publications in the area of philanthropy. Not only is there lack of research in the field, there is also no university in Africa that teaches philanthropy and offers higher degrees in the same field. The Wits Business School is the first to develop a full Master of Management in African Philanthropy as well as offer a Master of Management Degree by Research in Philanthropy. In addition, the school now offers doctoral students opportunities to study philanthropy in its different forms. However, from the outset, this initiative is foreseen in terms of its wider outreach and contribution to what is seen and understood as philanthropic behaviour in different contexts and their histories.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”100″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”grid” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” z_index=””][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1544572317749{padding-right: 5% !important;}”]

Rationale

 

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1544564064818{padding-right: 5% !important;}”]There is very little published in the field of philanthropy in Africa and other developmental setting. To close the gap and promote knowledge generation in this area, a journal on philanthropy is proposed. There is no journal that has a dedicated focus on research and theory in the field of philanthropy and social investment in Africa or elsewhere. This is despite the ever increasing growth and relevance of philanthropy in Africa and beyond as an area for teaching, research and practice. In the USA for example, there are now more than hundred masters’ and undergraduate programmes and more than fifty courses on philanthropy. In the UK and Europe, the focus on philanthropy has also increased exponentially.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1544564074124{padding-right: 5% !important;}”]These regions have also established journals that are close to the study of philanthropy, but are not established for this specific knowledge area. VOLUNTAS , for example is dedicated to publications mainly on the voluntary sector and the Non Profit Quarterly focuses on non-profit studies. The Foundation Review is a peer reviewed journal that is written by philanthropic professionals. It is not really committed to philanthropy related theory and research. None are reference points for publications about social investment made by businesses.  The proposed international journal on philanthropy and social investment therefore not only fills the gap in Africa and elsewhere but it also compliments journals already in existence that have a dimension on philanthropy but are not exclusively dedicated to philanthropy.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1544563920557{padding-right: 5% !important;}”]The International Review of Philanthropy and Social Investment is predominantly dedicated to academic research and theory, with some sections dedicated to practice. It is a journal based in Africa but with a global remit responding to the growing demand for both academic and practice related articles on the varieties and scales of philanthropy and social investment.  These include but not limited to venture, catalytic, impact investing, strategic and others. This is also in line with the increasing number of centers globally that are dedicated to philanthropy. With more centres and programmes on philanthropy, the need for more outlets for publications in the field arises. The existing journals such as VOLUNTAS and Non Profit Quarterly report turning away huge amounts of articles due to lack of space. African articles suffer the most in these cases. This journal will fill the void.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image=”831″ background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” z_index=””][vc_column][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][vc_column_text]

Aims and Scope

 

The journal aims primarily to explore the emergent and developing field by conducting primary research on the many forms and dimensions of philanthropy and social investment across the world. It further aims to promote the dissemination of knowledge as well as present new empirical knowledge on and/ or develop theory in the field of philanthropy and social investment. The journal takes a broad perspective of philanthropy and social investment in due to the very mutli-dimensional and multifaceted nature of the field. The journal encourages cross national and comparative research as well as interdisciplinary articles.

 

The journal will explore various themes in philanthropy and social investment. Its scope will include research articles, review articles, case studies as well as experiences from the field. At times, special issues will be considered especially emerging out of key conferences. One of the programmes of the Africa Centre for Philanthropy and Social investment at the Wits Business School is an annual philanthropy and social investment conference. Some of the papers from this conference will be considered for a special issue of the journal. In addition, the primary research that the Centre is supporting will feed into teaching especially at the Master of Management level. The journal therefore also serves as a base for teaching and research.

 

The Journal will be published twice a year in the first two years and then build towards quarterly starting in 2021. The journal’s primary articles should be 10 000 words long covering original research, theory development and practice. The journal is easily accessible in both electronic and paper formats.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space height=”150px”][vc_single_image image=”1066″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=”” qode_hover_animation=”darken”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”expandable” header_style=”light” text_align=”left” background_color=”#ffffff” color=”#000000″ hover_color=”#8f2a25″ more_button_label=”See the Editorial Board” less_button_label=”Close Editorial Board” button_position=”center”][vc_column][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner][vc_empty_space height=”40px”][vc_column_text]
