AfricArXiv is a community-led digital archive for African research, working towards building an African-owned open scholarly repository.
We partner with affiliate scholarly repository services to provide a platform for African scientists of any discipline to present their research findings and connect with other researchers on the African continent and globally.
Share any research output you produce free of charge to make manuscripts, datasets, presentations, posters, code, proposals, and more citable and discoverable – through a DOI and an open CC BY license.
To learn more about how to do that go to africarxiv.org/how-to-submit/
In case you were wondering, YES you can still submit your manuscript to a journal, we suggest you choose an Open Access journal either from AJOL or DOAJ. We have compiled a few more resources for journal selection resources at africarxiv.org/open-scholarly-publishing/
