comment:
"Electronic publishing has been heralded as a worldwide solution to information dissemination. This article considers the problems experienced by traditional journals published in the developing world, with particular reference to those published in sub-Saharan Africa. The opportunities offered by electronic online publishing are discussed to determine how they can resolve the current problems in dissemination and improve quality. Two case studies of different initiatives are presented: an online-only journal, the African Journal of Biotechnology (AJB), and an online journal table of contents and abstracting service, African Journals Online AJOL. The authors conclude that although online publishing is not a quick fix solution for all the problems experienced by journals in developing countries, it offers great potential for increasing the visibility and quality of indigenous knowledge, and thus offers journals the opportunity to take a place in the global publishing community.″It is imperative that African journals and authors embrace this model for research communication to ensure their continued existence and recognition of the importance of indigenous research.″ (Hans M. Zell, Publishing, Books & Reading in Sub-Saharan Africa, 3d ed. 2008, nr. 1855)
