I-Eider Africa, i-Prereview, i-AfricArXiv, kanye ne-TCC Africa Bakha Isifundo Sokubandakanya Abacwaningi Baningi Base-Afrika Ekubuyekezweni Kontanga

I-Eider Africa, i-PREreview, i-AfricArXiv, kanye neSikhungo Sokuqeqesha Kwezokuxhumana (i-TCC Africa) zisebenza ndawonye ohlelweni olusha lokuqeqeshwa kokubuyekezwa kontanga lwabacwaningi abasebasha kuya kwabamaphakathi e-Afrika, oluqhutshwa yi-eLife. Lesi sifundo sihlose ukuqwashisa ngemibhalo yangaphambi kwesikhathi futhi imeme abacwaningi/izazi zase-Afrika ekubuyekezweni okuvulelekile kwama-preprints.

Ukukhuthaza Ubuliminingi ku-African Scholarship Ngamathuluzi Edijithali

Kunezinhlelo ezimbalwa zokukhuthaza izilimi zase-Afrika ezikoleni nasemanyuvesi afana nezifundo zezilimi zase-Afrika, ukucubungula ulimi lwemvelo, nokuhunyushwa phakathi kokunye. Nangu uChido Dzinotyiwei owenza kube lula ukufunda izilimi zomdabu zase-Afrika ngohlelo lwakhe, iVambo academy. UChido ungumfundi we-Master of Commerce e-University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business (UCT GSB). 

I-Dawn entsha yabaPhenyi base-Afrika njenge-TCC Africa kanye ne-AfricArXiv Memezela Ukusebenzisana Okuhlelekile

Isikhungo Sokuqeqesha Kwezokuxhumana (i-TCC Africa), esizinze eNyuvesi yaseNairobi, eKenya, kanye ne-pan-African Open Access portal i-AfricArXiv ngalokhu simemezela isivumelwano sethu esisemthethweni sokusebenzisana ngenhloso yokwakha indlela yesikhathi eside yamasu nezinzile yokwakha kanye ukuphatha umphakathi wezazi zomhlaba wonke ozocebisa ukubonakala kocwaningo lwase-Afrika.

Imibono yase-Afrika Ekubuyekezweni Kontanga: Ingxoxo Ejikelezayo

I-AfricArXiv, i-Eider Africa, i-TCC Africa, kanye ne-PREreview bayathokozisa ukusingatha ingxoxo eyindilinga yemizuzu engama-60, eletha imibono yase-Afrika engxoxweni yomhlaba mayelana nengqikithi yaleli sonto yaleminyaka ethi, “Identity in Peer Review”. Ngokubambisana nephaneli yemikhakha eyahlukene yabahleli base-Afrika, ababuyekezi kanye nabaphenyi bokuqala, sizohlola ubunikazi obushintshayo babaphenyi ezwenikazi lase-Afrika, ngombono ogqamile obabona njengabathengi bolwazi olukhiqizwa kwezinye izimo kubacwaningi ababambe iqhaza. ekubuyekezweni kontanga kwezazi. Sizolwela ukudala indawo ephephile yokuzindla ngezinkinga zokukhishwa kolwazi lwezazi, ukuchema ekubuyekezweni kontanga, kanye nemikhuba evulekile yokubuyekeza ontanga.

Izilimi zase-Afrika ukuthola amagama amaningi wesayensi

IDecolonise Science izoqasha abahumushi ukuthi basebenze emaphepheni akwa-AfricArXiv umbhali wokuqala ongowase-Afrika, kusho umphenyi oyinhloko uJade Abbott, ingcweti yokufunda imishini ezinze eGoli, eNingizimu Afrika. Amagama angenakho okufana nolimi oluqondiwe azomakwa ukuze ochwepheshe bamatemu kanye nabaxhumanisi besayensi bakwazi ukwakha amagama amasha. "Akufani nokuhumusha incwadi, lapho amagama angahle abe khona," kusho u-Abbott. "Lokhu kungumsebenzi wokwakha amagama."

Shayela Izethulo, Isayensi Ye-Decolonise

Ithimba lakwa-AfricArXiv liyaziqhenya ngokumemezela ukuthi sibambisene noMasakhane ukwakha ikhophi efanayo yezilimi eziningi yocwaningo lwase-Afrika kusuka ekuhumusheni kwemibhalo yesandla yocwaningo efakwe ku-AfricArXiv. Kuma-athikili athunyelwe, amaqembu aseMasakhane nase-AfricArXiv azokhetha afinyelela ku-180 esewonke ukuze ahunyushwe.

Izizathu Ezinhlanu Zokuthi Kungani Ufanele Uzithobe Ku-AfricArXiv

Ngokuthumela umsebenzi wakho ngathi kunoma iziphi izinsizakalo ezibambisene nabalingani bethu Ososayensi base-Afrika banoma isiphi isiyalo bangaveza imiphumela yabo yocwaningo futhi baxhumane nabanye abacwaningi ezwenikazi lase-Afrika nasemhlabeni jikelele mahhala. Zonke izinqolobane zethu zozakwethu zinikeza i-DOI (okokuhlonza into yedijithali) kanye nelayisense evulekile yokufunda (imvamisa i-CC-BY 4.0) emsebenzini wakho wokuqinisekisa ukutholakala kwemininingwane yolwazi ngosizo lwenkomba yeCrossref.

Imemezela #FeedbackASAP ngu-ASAPbio

I-ASAPbio ibambisene ne-DORA, HHMI, kanye neChan Zuckerberg Initiative ukusingatha ingxoxo ngokwakha isiko lokubuyekezwa komphakathi okwakhayo kanye nempendulo kuma-preprints. Funda isimemezelo esigcwele se-ASAPbio bese uthola ukuthi ungabhalisela kanjani umcimbi futhi usekele ukubuyekezwa kwangaphambili.
