See who made the Literati Awards 2020

In recent events, Emerald Publishing awarded Professor Evans Osabuohien, the Emerald Literati Awards for Excellence for the continued support of African Journal of Economic and Management Studies (AJEMS). As the Chair for the Centre for Economic Policy and Development Research (CEPDeR), Covenant University, Ota, Nigeria, he has made remarkable contributions that have taken him a step further in reach for the stars, as one of the Outstanding Reviewers in 2020.

Professor Evans Osabuohien’s guest edited a special issue titled: Labour Issues in Africa’s Agricultural and Rural Transformation (Part I &II). The Part I focused on how the agricultural sector, which remains the largest employer of labour in African countries, could be transformed to unlock its potentials. The emergence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has re-emphasized the impact of socio-economic shocks on labour outcomes and livelihood specifically in the agricultural sector and rural development.

The Part II of the Special Issue highlights critical issues that are essential for achieving rural transformation and development in African countries, which include inequality (gender and income), access to agricultural resources (credit and inputs) as well as labour productivity in the agricultural sector.   

The two issues guest edited on ‘Labour Issues in Africa’s Agricultural and Rural Transformation (Part I &II) are published as Volume 11, Issue 3 and Issue 2, African Journal of Economic and Management Studies (AJEMS)
