West Africa is the most complex region of the African continent regarding linguistic and cultural variation. This might be due to the special geo-historical fate of the sub-Saharan continent in which about half of all the African linguistic and cultural communities can be found. The present series was originally founded as medium of publication and forum for the Collaborative Research Center 268 Kulturentwicklung und Sprachgeschichte im Naturraum Westafrikanische Savanne (1988–2003) of the Goethe University in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

Also after its end, the series concentrates on publishing works in Africa-related areas (African linguistics, ethnology, literary studies, musicology, cultural geography, etc.). In this context, manuscripts submitted by African researchers and colleagues working in West Africa are taken into consideration more frequently.

The contributions to this series are double peer-reviewed.
