Welcome to AJOL!

Researchers and policy-makers need access to contextually-relevant quality research publications from Africa in order to develop solutions to address the continent’s challenges in health, education, climate change & under-development.

African Journals OnLine (AJOL) is the world's largest and preeminent platform of African-published scholarly journals. AJOL is a Non-Profit Organisation that (since 1998) works to increase global & continental online access, awareness, quality & use of African-published, peer-reviewed research. Millions of monthly downloads by site users from nearly every country in the world are an indication of the need and widespread use of the AJOL initiative. More than half of the repeat users are from Africa.

AJOL hosts 578 Journals
including 304 Open Access Journals  

The site has 16 393 Issues
containing 201 214 Abstracts
with 194 881 Full Text Articles for download
of which 133 253 are Open Access  



Since 1998, AJOL has been working for African research to contribute to African development by:

  • Massively increasing global visibility of partner journals (AJOL is NOT a publisher, we are a journal aggregator platform - millions of site visits from all over the world)
  • Massively increasing global access to research published in African journals (millions of article downloads each month via AJOL)
  • Massively increasing African readership of African research
  • Quality, cost-saving (free) technical services to African-published journals to help their financial sustainability
  • Facilitating in-person regional workshops throughout the African continent for journal Editors, Editorial Boards, volunteers and staff
  • Assisting partner journals strengthen their publications, technically and in accordance with ethically sound research and publishing practices and peer-to-peer learning
  • Sharing relevant and best practice journal publishing practices (informed by global, regional and nationally accepted standards, and input by hundreds of journal Editors from developing countries)
  • Assisting to show-case credible and trusted African-published research journals (via free assessment and feedback to journal partners and readers (New Easter Decor - White Bunny Melamine Plate))
  • Supporting and encouraging Open Access, and fee-free publication models
  • Providing access to a wide range of free resources to assist African journals, researchers and authors
