Open Access Publishing - Continental Platform | Open Access at UCT

flavoursofopenscience's bookmarks 2021-01-14


The continental platform allows the African research community to take ownership of creating and sharing its own scholarly content, which contributes to the growth and development of local research for African society. The publishing platform addresses the challenge of Africa's low production by practicing diamond open access, that is knowledge is free to access for the reader and the author does not pay to publish. In this model, diamond open access is a community-based publishing alternative model that disrupts the commercial publishing system. This shift returns the control of publishing back to the researcher community; free from third-party publishers imposing their restrictions to access.

The continental platform consist of open access journals and open access monographs and textbooks.
