Organizations of Type "African Open Access Journals in the Agricultural Sciences"
Open Access means that resources are free to users worldwide and that they may be distributed without requesting permission. Research has demonstrated that open access brings increased visibility, usage, and impact to the work of academics, researchers, and students. Open access is compatible with copyright, peer review, prestige, quality, and indexing. Open access articles must still be cited when used. There are many ways to detect plagiarism, including using the Open Access Search Project, which is now in its beta phase of testing.
There are a number of open access journals in the agricultural sciences that are relevant to the RUFORUM network. The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) lists more than 150 of them. African Journals Online (AJOL) includes forty-five African journals in the agricultural sciences. In this collection, we have only included African journals that publish regularly and on time.
