To African Academics and Researchers

· use African-published journals for the dissemination of research findings, especially those appropriate and valuable to African countries.

· recognize that many relevant journals are published in Africa, outside of the home country, and make an effort to find out, read and contribute to what is available.

· make more use of African-published journals in teaching, in order to introduce a knowledge of them to students from undergraduate level onwards.
