The aim of the case is to increase the quality and quantity of African research output and support the exposure of those publications to the global research community by improving the discoverability and long-term availability. We believe improved scientific output will drive meaningful economic growth.
Elsevier will contribute to this goal by uniting local publishers and their journals in Africa into the New African Scientific Publishing Cooperative and professionalize the member organizations by offering access to our production and hosting solutions and provide coaching. Access to our production and hosting solutions has proven to lead to +300% improvements in number of scientific articles, their impact and readership. As a result Africa will establish a publishing cooperative that is expected to (1) generate $3M in annual revenue, (2) create > 50 high tech jobs and (3) improve a broken scientific publishing infrastructure which will (4) increase the global impact of African scientists and help create the African research that is needed to help fuel real knowledge intensive growth on the African continent.
