Its aim was to provide an outlet for Ghanaian scholars to share their research and make their voices heard in the larger scholarly community. In the beginning, the journal was divided into three major sections: research articles, reviews, and news. Research articles contained the original research that was conducted by Ghanaian scholars while reviews featured analysis of existing literature.
