THE WEST AFRICAN JOURNAL OF MONETARY
AND ECONOMIC INTEGRATION (WAJMEI):
CALL FOR ARTICLES FOR THE DECEMBER 2005
The West African Journal of Monetary and Economic Integration (WAJMEI), is a bi-
annual publication of the West African Monetary Institute based in Accra, Ghana.
Articles for the Journal could be in any area of Economics but with a focus on sub-
regional and global issues with policy relevance for the West African Monetary Zone
(WAMZ). This is important as the Institute is mandated to undertake preparatory
activities for the launching of the WAMZ and the setting up of the West African Central
Towards the endeavour to build the WAMZ on solid economic fundamentals and with
regard to the focus of the Institute, authors of articles for the Journal could exercise
freedom in the choice of titles in three areas as follows:
i. Regional integration issues with relevance for the WAMZ, ECOWAS and
African Monetary Cooperation Programme.
ii. Economic issues with cross country analysis on the WAMZ, ECOWAS and
iii. Global economic issues with relevance for the WAMZ, ECOWAS and Africa.
Authors may prepare papers for the Journal on country issues but such articles would not
be accorded priority. They would be considered only if such country specific articles are
received in respect of other WAMZ countries. In this regard, a zone wide distribution of
articles would be attained.
Contributors of articles are requested to follow these guidelines to ensure speedy
processing of materials for the Journal.
The Articles for the December 2005 Edition of the Journal should be forwarded to the
Editor-in-Chief, Dr. M. O. Ojo on or before end-July 2005. This will facilitate the
editorial review of the Articles. The Institute hopes to go to press by November 2005.
Articles that are submitted before end-July 2005 and considered for publication will
attract an honorarium of $600 (six hundred dollars) while articles submitted late but
considered adequate will attract an honorarium of $500 (five hundred dollars).
