Open Access Week is celebrated in the last full week of October each year. This global event (celebrated from 19 – 25 October this year) is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.
The theme for this year’s International Open Access Week is “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion.” In support of this year’s theme, we are highlighting the importance of OA and the impact AOSIS has made on OA publishing.
AOSIS Publishing, a division of AOSIS (Pty) Ltd, provides comprehensive and personal publishing services for scholarly journals, scholarly books and conference proceedings. As an open access publisher, we offer high-quality African publications and are committed to disseminating peer-reviewed African (and international) research across a range of academic disciplines.
We are proud of the impact we have made on OA publishing, not only in Africa, but also globally. As the leading OA publisher in Africa, our library boasts a total of 44 open access scholarly journals at present across 5 segments (Economic and Management Sciences, Health and Veterinary Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, Engineering and Technology, Theological and Religious Studies).
