Open Access survey of Africa-published journals

Other by INASP, published on Feb. 9, 2006

Countries: None

Tags: Open Access,

A survey of African journal editors was undertaken in 2005 to ascertain their awareness and understanding of the open access movement and to discover if their journals would be willing to publish open access. The survey showed limited awareness and understanding of open access and caution regarding its suitability for their own publications. There was also reported a high level of fear about journal sustainability. The survey highlighted the need for more information about emerging publishing models and the open access movement to be provided to publishers of Sub-Saharan African journals.
