What is the Toolbox?
This is a toolbox for (early career) scholars in the field of African studies on all matters surrounding research:
- For example:
- What is the difference between green and golden open access?
- What is the difference between data storage and long-term preservation?
- What do the self-archiving rights in Germany entail? (4 parts)
- What is the difference between academic networking sites and research repositories?
- But also: Where can I find a list of research repositories on the African continent?
- What are the most important African university presses and where can I find their websites?
- What opportunities are available for research cooperation between Germany and African countries?
- Where can I find Africa related open access journals?
- What effect does the Journal Impact Factor (JIF) have on African Studies?
The goal of the toolbox is to provide brief introductions cumulatively; inviting scholars delve deeper into topics of their interest.
Simultaneously, the toolbox tries to cover the broad spectrum of the various disciplines represented in African Studies.
In addition, the toolbox addresses scholars in Germany, as well as those based on the African continent, for example with information on research cooperation or funding opportunities between German and African institutions.
