African Journals OnLine (AJOL): is the world’s largest and pre-eminent collection of peer-reviewed, African-published scholarly journals. Historically, scholarly information has flowed from North to South and from West to East. It has also been difficult for African researchers to access the work of other African academics. In partnership with hundreds of journals from all over the continent, AJOL works to change this, so that African-origin research output is available to Africans and to the rest of the world.
CODESRIA: the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa is headquartered in Dakar Senegal. It was established in 1973 as an independent Pan-African research organisation with a primary focus on the social sciences, broadly defined. It is recognised not only as the pioneer African social research organisation but also as the apex non-governmental centre of social knowledge production on the continent. The collection of Journals under CODESRIA are: Africa Development, Afrika Zamani, Identity, Culture and Politics, The African Anthropologist, African Sociological Review, African Journal of International Affairs, Africa Review of Books, Africa Media Review, Journal of Higher Education in Africa, Afro-Arab Selections for Social Sciences.
