Interview with TCC Africa’s  Director , Joy Owango on our partnership  with AfricArxiv, Africa’s open access publishing platform  – listen in! .

“What is the plan for AfricArXiv? Increasing the visibility of African research,” says Joy Owango, founding director of TCC Africa, who also serves on the AfricArXiv board of directors. “We do not believe in reinventing the wheel. There are already existing repositories, and what we’ve done is that we’ve partnered with them, and through those repositories, we’ve created a gateway in which African research can be visible – can be much more visible.

“This is a platform by Africans, for Africans, on African research. It can’t get better than that,” Owango tells CCC’s Chris Kenneally.
