AfricArxiv is a free, open-source and community-led digital archive for African research. We provide a non-profit platform for African scientists to upload their working papers, preprints, accepted manuscripts (post-prints), and published papers. We also provide options to link data and code, and for article versioning. AfricArxiv is dedicated to speeding and opening up research and collaboration among African scientists and helping to build the future of scholarly communication.

Support the AfricArXiv preprint repository and the people behind the scenes. In order to sustain the AfricArXiv services, maintain and grow the community and platform, we provide individuals as well as institutions with the following means to financially contribute to our work. Our expenses include:

  • building and maintaining the AfricArXiv platform
  • community engagement
  • marketing
  • service fees (web hosting and other service partnerships e.g. with ORCID, OSF, …)
  • traveling and presenting at conferences – incl. related expenses for Visa and accommodation
  • partnership building

All donations and sponsorship we receive will be put to one or more of the above-mentioned purposes. To discuss what exactly your given amount shall contribute to please contact us at <support@africarxiv.org>.

Please note: We are not (yet) registered as an institution but work remotely as a team with no dedicated office space. Therefore, we currently cannot issue donation receipts. Once we have built a viable basis financially as well as strategically with our Open Science in Africa network partners, we will announce the launch of a registered non-profit institution.
