About Aphrike Research
The AphrikeResearch is a database and networking portal that provides a centralised platform for information that profiles and records African scientists, students, and research managers in order to promote intra-Africa collaboration and interventions for SDG realisation, makes easy identification of collaborators, mentors, and funding opportunities, and profile funders (specific fields/priorities/countries). The portal also mobilizes interaction between research managers, policymakers, researchers, and research students, and provides a resource for STI and R&D strategy planning – who is involved in whichever research.
AfricArXiv is a community-led digital archive for African research, working towards building an African-owned open scholarly repository; a knowledge commons of African scholarly works to catalyze the African Renaissance. We partner with established 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.
