Open Access and the African Journal Partnership Project

Neil Pakenham -Walsh of HIFA has written :

” For some time now I have been applauding on HIFA the fact that so many medical journals published in Africa are now available open access. This really is a remarkable shift to improve the availability of health research in Africa.

I have been trying to find out how such journals are able to make this transition to open access and thereby inspire other African medical journals to do the same. I think I have perhaps found the answer- the African Journal Partnership Project- in the editorial of the latest issue of Malawi Medical Journal “.
