Organisation: The Conversation Africa
Name of Exhibition: The Conversation Africa
The Conversation is a not-for-profit initiative serving universities and the research sector in Africa. Our mission is to mainstream the voices of science and support science communication activities. We do this by working with academics and scientists, who themselves write and provide fact/evidence/research-based analytical articles on various societal issues and articles about their research findings as well. Our editors work with academics and researchers to publish short these articles, +/- 800 words. Our objective is to make the knowledge produced in the academy
accessible, easy to understand and freely available for the public. Articles are published daily on our website – https://theconversation.com/africa
. We publish under a Creative Commons Licence and advocate for open access. All articles can be republished. Since launching, cumulatively all articles as at the end of June 2018 have reached over 50 million reads online globally.
