AfricArxiv is a community-led digital archive for African research items such as research manuscripts, reports, datasets, code, illustrations, presentations, and more. By enhancing the visibility of African research, we enable discoverability and collaboration opportunities for African scientists on the continent as well as globally.
We have set up a central repository hosted by UbuntuNet Alliance.
Since our launch in 2018, we have worked with - and will continue to work with - the following hosted generalist repositories, where you can find research shared from and about Africa:
Join us for a series of webinars, where we will discuss how the persistent identifiers ORCID, ROR, and DOI enable interoperability across scholarly digital services while also ensuring the discoverability of African research.
This webinar series aims to assist African researchers, librarians, and institutions in the adoption of digital tools and persistent identifiers for a significant increase of African research discoverability, globally and to improve efficiency in scholarly workflows.
AfricArXiv Collections are thematic groups of research items to showcase the accomplishments of a research community, department, event (conference, hackathon, barcamp, …), or project.

To strengthen science communication and research discoverability in Africa, we support and promote the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science (+ Toolkit); the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment, the Helsinki Initiative on Multilingualism, the COPE Guidelines on integrity in research and its publication; the Principles of Open Scholarly Infrastructure (POSI), the FAIR Principles and the CARE principles.
