I offer some links to resources to catch up with what happened in the Discoverability of African Scholarship Online workshop that took place 10-11 March 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya, and was organised by the OpenUCT Initiative and the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
I am in Nairobi for the Promoting Discoverability of African Scholarship workshop organised by the OpenUCT Initiative in collaboration with the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
I have deposited on figshare a third alluvial diagram, this time focusing on the country of affiliation of the Principal Investigator/Author of the articles and the geographical area mentioned in the article title.
I shared two first drafts of a couple of alluvial charts I made visualising a dataset of the 25 highest scoring peer-reviewed articles with the term "Africa" in the title.
Today the LSE Impact of Social Sciences blog republished my "Alt-metrics, Digital Opportunity and Africa" Altmetric blog post. You can read it here.
My new post at Altmetric is guided by the concept of digital opportunity. I take a quick look at some research on the uptake of ICTs and social media in Africa and link to and comment on Altmetric details of two articles on Africa.
