The Enslaved project welcomes submissions from researchers working on the history of African slavery and historic slave trades. Submissions should be in two forms: datasets to be published on the Enslaved platform or datasets already accessible elsewhere. For consideration, datasets should have information about individuals associated with African slavery. Submissions will be peer reviewed, following a process similar to that of a journal submission review. Please send queries including a brief description of your dataset and sources to Additionally, we welcome any datasets not yet in database form. If you have questions about a project you are working on, feel free to email us as well.

Following the successful Enslaved conference, we are looking to produce an edited volume based on the discussions of the conference. If you are interested, please contact us at the email address above.

For any other questions involving the Enslaved project, or if you would like more information regarding our project, publishing platform, metadata, etc., send us an email.
