The work of researchers in higher education is strongly influenced by funding, disciplines, hierarchy, and competition. For this discussion we will explore strategies to challenge these patterns and explore scholarly communication and divide between North and South divide in Africa.
Articles we will be discussing.
1. Politics of Research from Martin, Brian, 1947- Information liberation : challenging the corruptions of information power / Brian Martin. London : Freedom Press, 1998.
2. Lor, Peter J. 2007. "Bridging the North--South Divide in Scholarly Communication in Africa -- a library and information systems perspective." IFLA Journal 33(4):303-312.
