dc.description.abstractScientific and technological information and knowledge is critical to the development of Africa. However, very little research output from Africa finds its way into the international journals. Much of it is in form of grey literature i.e. unpublished information and knowledge resources such as research reports, theses and dissertations, seminar and conference papers, and due to several factors, the literature is not visible and easily accessible to potential users (scientific and technological communities and policy makers) both in and outside Africa. Use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for the management and distribution of digital-based scientific information and knowledge will enhance access and sharing of these vital resources on the continent and contribute to the development of Africa. In particular, institutional repositories and Open Access archives have the potential to improve access to scientific and technological data, information, and knowledge being generated in Africa.en
