BioMed Central's second Open Access Africa conference, in association with Computer Aid International, is taking place at KNUST, Ghana.
The free conference will be held from 25-26 October 2011 during Open Access Week. To register you interest in attending please visit our website.
Currently only 0.7% of all research published comes from sub-Saharan Africa, yet African researchers have a key role to play in finding solutions to the many challenges faced by African countries. Open access publisher BioMed Central is working to increase the visibility of scientific research from Africa with a set of initiatives designed to encourage African researchers to publish their work in open access journals.
