This writing workshop furthers the 'Nairobi Process', a British Academy-led initiative focusing on the challenges of undertaking research in the social sciences and the humanities in Africa. It also aligns with the highly successful ASAUK's writing workshops scheme which has supported hundreds of Africa-based scholars to get published in high impact journals. The workshop will involve bringing together journal editors and experienced researchers to work together with early career researchers in intense writing and mentoring sessions tailored to support the latter in producing publishable journal articles. The editors and researchers will be drawn from various disciplines but will all be familiar with the challenges facing early career researchers in Africa. The workshop intends to see through to publication some of the participants' research outputs. It also aims to build intra-Africa and international academic networks and structures to facilitate research collaboration and to provide continued support to participants.
