Language Policy in Africa (LPIA) is a new journal, supporting the idea that African languages are key to Africa's development, also in the context of decolonisation. For its inaugural issue (planned for the end of 2024), LPIA seeks original and sound articles that may help to shape practical, efficient, rational, and inclusive African language-based policies on the whole continent.

LPIA is open-access, double-blind peer-reviewed. There are no Article Processing Charges. It will initially be published twice a year under the auspices of the Edinburgh Circle on the Promotion of African Languages (ECPAL), in collaboration with the Centre for the Study of Language and Society of the University of Bern.
