The Open Access publisher PLOS, and the Training Centre in Communication, based at the University of Nairobi, Kenya, (known as TCC Africa) have announced a partnership to ensure that the interests and values of African research communities are represented in PLOS publications, policies, and services. The two organizations will work together to study and co-create pathways to Open Research that work for African researchers and stakeholders within the scholarly community ecosystem, while preserving the core tenets of Open Research.
“This is the beginning of an amazing partnership that will support higher education stakeholders in adopting open science, which will help increase their research visibility,” said Joy Owango, Executive Director TCC Africa. “PLOS and TCC Africa have similar objectives in supporting the research and academic community by democratizing research through effective adoption of open science.”
