African Journal Archive


The African Journal Archive is a retrospective digitisation project of full-text journal articles published in Africa, in the Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities, providing access to a multi-disciplinary, multi-country digital archive of Africa’s research and cultural heritage contained in its journal literature.

This project is hosted by Sabinet Gateway with funding from the from the Carnegie Corporation. It offers free access to historic backfiles of a collection of journals published in Africa from a range of subject areas covering the sciences, social sciences and humanities.

Topics covered in the most detail are agriculture, botany, zoology, history, law, education, politics, medicine, geology, most recently published issues are not hosted on the African Journal Archive links are provided to publishers websites.

This is a complement to the African Journal Online website http://ajol.info/ which also offers links to African published materials. This is an independent project again covering all subject areas. Although there may be some overlap the sites does seem at the moment to have distinct content.
