The mission of Langaa Research and Publishing Common Initiative Group (Langaa RPCIG) is to contribute to the cultural development and renaissance of Africa. This is achieved by conducting research, providing training in research and writing.
Langaa is physically located in Bamenda and Buea (Cameroon), although its members and volunteers operate from different parts of the world.
So far, Langaa has published over 400 titles, mainly on Cameroon, but also on other African countries like Malawi, Mali, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Outstanding scholars and ordinary people familiar with the Cameroonian and African context provide editorial guidance. Each manuscript is systematically reviewed before a publication decision. Peer reviews, reader reports, and editorial changes are stored as evidence of the rigour of Langaa’s processes.
