Clobridge Consulting is working in partnership with African Journals
Online to conduct a research study to collect, analyze, and
disseminate knowledge in this arena  in order to share best
practices, identify emerging trends, and gain insights from editors
about their successes and concerns. While a good deal of research has

More details and access to the survey are available at:

All journal editors and publishers of African-based journals are
invited to participate in the study.

The survey is available in English and French. An offline version is
available upon request. To request an offline version of the survey or
to share comments, questions, or concerns, please email
kim AT The survey will close on Friday, 6
September 2013.
