We’re sharing slides and recordings from the webinar series for African journal editors and publishers, which proved to be extremely popular - attracting over 1,000 people. Over 600 participants attending the webinars expressed such keen interest that the organizers have decided to continue the series in the second half of 2022.

The seven webinars were organized by EIFL, African Journals Online (AJOL), Academy of Sciences of South Africa (ASSAf), Directory of Open Access Journals, (DOAJ), LIBSENSE and University of Cape Town (UCT).

Most of the webinars took place in English and French. The slides and recordings are available on the EIFL website, as good practice resources: 

Thanks to all the speakers and facilitators - Bessem Aamira (CNUDST - University National Center of Scientific and Technical Documentation), Judith Barnsby (DOAJ), Kamel Belhamel (DOAJ), Louise van Heerden (SciELO SA), Thomas Mboa (Université de Yaoundé II), Susan Murray (AJOL), Lena Nyahodza (UCT), Tom Olijhoek (DOAJ), Ina Smith (ASSAf), Susan Veldsman (ASSAf) and Lucienne Wilme (AJOL). 

The second series of webinars, planned for later this year, will expand this collection of good practice resources.
