African Researchers Magazine (ISSN: 2714-2787) is an authoritative, non-profit, scholarly publication focused on African research communication and dissemination. Our goal is to promote African research findings and contribution to end users (governments, policies makers, practitioners, professionals, academics, business people, NGOs and the laymen on the streets of Africa), thereby influencing decision making for the greater good of the continent.


AR Mission Statement:
*To translate African research findings into simple usable resource that addresses the actual needs of the African people.

AR Problem Statement:
*The current trend in the utilization of African research findings needs urgent attention. To a large extent, most of her findings are only appreciated and consumed within the academic and research community. Her findings are under-utilized by the government and its agencies, policies makers, practitioners, professionals, business people, NGOs and laymen on the streets the of continent. Africa has learned to rely on foreign research results instead of hers. Her research efforts are overlooked globally as inferior with little or no value. Her findings are poorly communicated and made inapplicable in solving her problems and those of her children. Her research is only known for “Literary Citations” within scholarly publications. If we most revert this ugly and unfortunate trend; all stakeholders’ hands must be on deck for a collaborative solution.



African Researchers Magazine boast of well-trained professional “Research Journalists” who go into the field to uncover the continents’ hidden talents; researchers and scientists, showcasing their research, findings and experiences to the world at large.
