Sudan Studies

Sudan Studies, ISSN 0952-049X, is a non-peer-reviewed journal published twice yearly by SSSUK and distributed free to members of the Society. Views expressed in notes, articles and reviews published in Sudan Studies are not necessarily those held by the SSSUK or the Editor and Editorial Board. Articles are published to promote discussion and further scholarship in Sudan and South Sudan studies. We are also keen to review recently published books on Sudan and South Sudan in any of their aspects.


The Editor is Charlotte Martin, and the members of the Editorial Board are: Ms Jane Hogan, Dr Douglas Johnson, Rev Andrew Wheeler, Ms Charlotte Martin, Professor Peter Woodward, and Mr Aly Verjee.

All correspondence, articles and features relating to Sudan Studies should be addressed to:

  • Charlotte Martin,
  • Hon Editor,
  • Sudan Studies,
  • 72 Castle Road,

Notes for contributors

SSSUK welcomes notes and articles intended for publication, to be assessed by the Editorial Board. The maximum length of an article is 5,000 words including footnotes; longer articles may be accepted for publication in two or more parts. Notes and articles should be typed in Times New Roman and single spaced and should normally be submitted as Microsoft Word files and sent to the editor as an e-mail attachment. Maps, diagrams and photographs should be of high definition and sent as separate files, with a file name corresponding directly to the figure or plate number in the text. Any bibliographies should be in Harvard style. SSSUK retains the right to edit articles for reasons of space or clarity, and consistency of style and spelling.

It is helpful to have some relevant details about the author (2-3 lines), e.g. any post held, or time spent in Sudan or South Sudan, and connection with the topic being discussed.
