Abstract or Summary
  • In the past, fisheries and aquaculture researchers in Africa have been handicapped by poor access to current scientific literature and difficulties in getting published in visible outlets. Efforts in the past decade to improve access, awareness and use of information have flourished. We examine whether these efforts are reflected in the output of African fisheries scientists. We also explore how the Open Access movement may be influencing the dissemination of African fisheries science.
