Nature Africa is a standalone digital magazine that reports on scientific research and issues of science policy across the African continent. Stories will be relevant to researchers and a wider audience of people interested in science.
Recognizing that a lot of excellent research from Africa does not receive the coverage it deserves, Nature Africa will help shed light on some of these stories and bring them to a wider audience.
Through a mixture of research highlights, science news and feature stories written by science journalists, readers will be able to keep up with the latest African research. Nature Africa will also offer opinion pieces and commentaries, providing a platform for the scientific community to provide their perspectives on scientific matters.
All stories will be freely accessible, and the website will give voice to African researchers based within Africa as well as those working in the diaspora.
Nature Africa is published by Nature Portfolio, part of Springer Nature and will be available at nature.com/natafrica. Nature Africa is produced with financial support from a consortium of partners. Nature Portfolio has sole responsibility for all editorial content. About this content.
