A Slice of the Research Cake: The Impact of Open Science in Africa

Episode Summary: 

In this episode we talk to Joy Owango, Founding Director at Training Centre in Communication. We discussed how Open Science is democratising research and access to data and publishing in Africa, the importance of ownership in research, and the challenges inherent in widespread change. 

Originally we interviewed another two guests who are involved in the Open Science movement on the African continent: Osman Aldirdiri, founding director of Open Sudan initiative and Jo Havemann, co-founder of the AfricArXiv. Due to technical difficulties we can only publish the audio from Joy Owango. However, we do have a transcript of the full interview with all three guests.
