Sabinet supports Open Access Week 18-24 October 2010

Sabinet is proud to communicate its support for Open Access Week in 2010.

Sabinet’s Open Access Journal Collection currently consists of 46 predominantly Southern African journal titles. Users can search within these individual titles and immediate access to the PDF version of 8000+ full-text articles is provided.

Fourteen of the journals in the collection are accredited journals and appear on the DoE Approved South African Journals list, the ISI list or the IBSS list.

The journals in our Open Access Collection are also made available in the SA ePublications Full Collection as well as associated subject collections. Publishers who would like to make their journals available as Open Access titles are welcome to
contact us.

Also affiliated with Sabinet is the African Journal Archive.

This project is collecting journals published exclusively in Africa and about Africa, with a focus on the Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities. The Archive contains issues digitised retrospectively back to the first issue. The journals are available free of charge on the African Journal Archive website at www.ajarchive.org.

The project provides a unique opportunity for universities and research organisations to digitise their journals free of charge back to the first issue. The digitised materials are then sent back to publishers for preservation and use on their own websites, further extending open access to African scholarship.

We invite African publishers to submit requests for inclusion as soon as possible to benefit from currently available funding. Any recommendations for new titles would also be appreciated.
