Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

Scholarly Communication in Africa Programme (SCAP)

The Scholarly Communication in Africa Programme (SCAP), funded by the International Development Research Centre in Canada works with African universities to increase the visibility of African academic research published in print and online. Based at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, the initiative explores ways of increasing the quality and output of scholarly communication through information-sharing technologies. The website hosts a blog that discusses issues surrounding the communication of research for development. It also provides information about relevant conferences, news, research and business models for publishing.
