Writing for Sustainable Development: Towards Strengthening African Grant and Research Writing for Publication

Dr Juliet Thondhlana, University of Nottingham; Zimbabwe
Project status

This workshop will further African countries’ agenda to achieve development through higher education by developing the grant writing and impact publication capacities of early career researchers in African universities. This is motivated by the perennial underrepresentation of Africa in knowledge production. The workshop will respond directly to this problem by facilitating mutual learning between early career researchers in six sub-Saharan Africa countries and senior researchers and editors of international journals in the Global North and South. The sustained interaction will increase the likelihood that new work produced by researchers from this Global South region will generate stronger impact through being published and cited in international journals where it can be debated more globally. The workshop is also intended to support Global North editors of leading international journals in gaining knowledge about how to increase the visibility of new African scholarship.
