    About the Journal


    The African Journal of Co-operative Development and Technology (AJCDT)  was founded by the Faculty members of the then Co-operative University College of Kenya (CUCK) in 2015 as a need to provide a platform through which they could present, publish research findings, debate issues, communicate with the audience beyond the confines of the department and the then University College at large. The Journal continued to be published and maintained by The Co-operative University of Kenya after award of the Charter in October, 2016. The aim is to publish high quality research papers in the fields of co-operative development and technology. Contributions to the journal can be made as either a research article, a review article or a communication paper. The journal is published semiannually in, May and November, and is distributed electronically worldwide via an open access.


    The journal was well received in academic circles and the co-operative movement in Kenya and beyond. It gave hope to many scholars and practitioners in the co-operative sector who had been yearning for such a forum in which to publish.
