Item description for African Scholarly Publishing. Essays by Alois Mlambo...

This work was conceived as a sequel to the African Writers Handbook (African Books Collective, 1999). It is built on the debates emanating from a seminar on scholarly publishing in Africa held in Arusha, Tanzania in 2002, organised by the Dag Hammarskjld Foundation, the African Books Collective and the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP). The seminar brought together scholars and publishers against a background of evidence of a revival of interest in higher education and scholarship in Africa after a long period of decline, and the new departures in scholarly publishing afforded by technology. This resulting collection of essays takes stock of the status of scholarly and academic publishing on the continent in the early years of the twenty-first century.

Reviews - What do customers think about African Scholarly Publishing. Essays?

The Need for Local African Publishing  Apr 8, 2007
Africa is far from being a center of the world's publishing industry. Yet, surprisingly, there is a movement whereby academics and other professionals are beginning to look at publishing African Literature in Africa. This book is a summary of and reprints of essays from a seminar on scholarly publishing in Africa held in Arusha, Tanzania in 2002.

There is a publishing industry in Africa, but it is small, fractured by country and language. (For more information on this aspect see the ILMP International Literary Market Place ISBN: 1573872520). This book instead has writers from a number of the companies talking about what they do and the particular problems they have faced.

A small but significant part of this book is the section on new technologies in publishing. Both electronic publishing and print on demand offer the possibility of making dramatic changes in African publishing.
