Global Research Report Africa
This report provides an introduction to the patterns of research activity across Africa by analysing and comparing:
•Research performance by region – north, central and south
•Fields of research and top performing nations in each
•Comparing output of published papers with GDP
•Level of collaboration within Africa and with countries outside the continent
In conclusion, the authors ascertain that the volume of activity remains small, much smaller than is desirable if the potential contribution of Africa’s researchers is to be realized for the benefit of its populations.
