Looking Ahead: AfricArXiv Open Science Webinars in March

Through an engaging webinar series dedicated to exploring the transformative impact of persistent identifiers (PIDs) we highlight to African scholarly stakeholders how selected scholarly services  work to increase the discoverability of African research in the global scholarly landscape. In this series, we delve into the significance of three key PIDs – ORCID, ROR, and DOI – and how they facilitate interoperability across various scholarly digital services.

This webinar series is funded by the ORCID Global Participation Fund and organized by UbuntuNet Alliance and Access2perspectives. Guest speakers from various organizations that work to advance open science in Africa have been included in the webinar series.

We invite you to attend the following webinars that are taking place in the month of March.
