Conference on Excellence in Research in Human and Social Sciences.

The conference will take place on Thursday, June 13, 2024, from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM (GMT+2).

Global Africa is a multilingual and interdisciplinary pan-African academic journal. Published quarterly and available in Open Access, it hosts reflections on global issues and their challenges approached from Africa and its diasporas to demonstrate how world transformations unfold from the continent.

Its 5th issue was released last March. However, the Global Africa program is broader: it aims to enhance the ecosystem of continental scientific publishing through the creation of journals, as well as the promotion of open access, capacity building for human resources in university presses, and scientific publishing professionals... Global Africa particularly prioritizes the digitization of academic archives: by digitizing and making accessible, in partnership, African journals lacking visibility, it will contribute to preserving and sharing Africa's intellectual heritage.
