Survey on open publishing in Africa

1 January, 2023

The survey linked below is intended for individuals who work or publish in Africa. It relates to the opportunities for open access publishing of public health research in Africa. PublicHealth.Africa led a survey of 174 journals from 13 African countries which publish articles on public health. A number of issues limiting open access to journal articles were identified. This survey aims to identify the needs for a support programme among editors and researchers who publish on public health in Africa. We would be grateful for your input.
