We stand in solidarity with the Black communities in the United States of America – #BlackLivesMatter
AfricArXiv exists to address the institutional and systemic challenges and biases in the scholarly publishing system to provide African researchers an explicit platform and support to communicate the work they do on the continent and beyond.
The mandate of the AfricArXiv community is to promote the visibility of African research. As a multi-culturally and multi-ethnically diverse team from 10 different countries we take pride in showcasing advancements in all scientific disciplines by African researchers from across the continent and in the diaspora. We are convinced that the global research community benefits from a balanced exchange of knowledge and experience from all parts of the world, especially as we address global challenges such as climate change, pandemics, poverty and forced migration.
