Respond to these two surveys to help us to better understand challenges faced by the diamond open access (OA) community in Africa and to plan for grant funding calls for projects to strengthen African diamond OA publishing initiatives.
The surveys support the ‘Collaboration for sustainable open access publishing in Africa’ project, which aims to develop and deliver a participatory funding approach that will enhance the quality and sustainability of African diamond OA publishing initiatives while maintaining their diversity. Diamond OA means that authors and readers pay no fees to publish or read articles.
Your responses will feed into development of two open calls for proposals for grant funding that will be co-designed with the diamond OA community in Africa. The first call will be issued later this year.
- If you are publishing a diamond OA journal in Africa please fill in this survey in English or in French.
- If you are based in Africa and manage an institutional, national, regional and/or discipline specific portal/website that hosts/indexes/aggregates African diamond OA journals, please fill in this survey.
The deadline for submitting responses is 29 February 2024.
The ‘Collaboration for sustainable open access publishing in Africa’ project is implemented by EIFL, AJOL (African Journals Online) and WACREN (the West and Central African Research and Education Network) with support from Wellcome.
