AfricArXiv - the pan-African Open Access portal

AfricArXiv is an open-source and community-led digital archive for African research. We provide a non-profit platform for African scientists to upload their working papers, preprints, accepted manuscripts (post-prints), and published papers. We also provide options to link data and code, and for article versioning. AfricArxiv is dedicated to enhance and open up research and collaboration among African scientists – co-design the future of scholarly communication.

Curation policy:

We encourage submissions from

  • African scientists based on the African continent
  • African scientists who are currently based at a host institute outside Africa
  • non-African scientists who report on research conducted on African territory; preferably with African co-authors listed
  • non-African scientists who report on research relevant to African affairs

AfricArxiv accepts the following types of manuscript – preprint or postprint:

  • Research articles
  • Review papers
  • Project proposals
  • Case studies
  • ‘negative’ results and ‘null’ results (i.e. results that do not support a hypothesis)
  • Data and methods papers
  • Technical notes
  • Dataset description papers
  • Translations of the above

Other manuscripts will be considered upon submission.
