Academic Publishing Practices: Perspectives from Ghanaian Universities
This collaborative GCRF-funded project brings together the University of Oxford and the University of Ghana to explore academic publication practices in a range of applied and interdisciplinary fields.
The aim is to develop a fuller understanding how individual choices are shaped by institutional expectations and incentives within a commercial publishing environment.
We are doing interviews with a range of academic staff at two Ghanaian universities. We are also seeking to gather the insights of journal editors and peer reviewers working for new academic publishers that have opened up publishing opportunities for African researchers.
