SUPPORT AFRICA SCIENCE THROUGH SPONSORSHIP OR MEMBERSHIP
AFRICA SCIENCE will implement a new business plan. This plan calls for the diversification of funding to promote the growth and development of the project (see About Africa Science). It is now requesting that libraries, organizations and individuals help support Africa Science through a membership and sponsorship program. AFRICA SCIENCE will be very pleased to acknowledge the sponsors and members who will commit their support.

WHY SHOULD YOU SUPPORT AFRICA SCIENCE?
AFRICA SCIENCE brings uncared African knowledge to the international research and teaching community. Sponsors and members will be supporting continued access to valuable and unique content for their faculty and students and contributing to bridging the knowledge divide between North and South countries. Becoming a supporting member of AFRICA SCIENCE is a strong statement of support for Open Access, and is an important step towards demonstrating that libraries and other organizations have a key role to play in the future of scholarly communication and its long term health.

WHAT WOULD YOUR SUPPORT ENABLE?
AFRICA SCIENCE is a strictly not-for-profit organization. Membership contributions will be used to support directly all aspects of AFRICA SCIENCE operations, including: server support, journal conversion costs, development of value added services (metadata enhancement, database linking, usage tracking), and basic daily operating expenses.

PARTNERING ORGANIZATIONS
Africa Science was launched in January 2010 and has not yet well established partners. Since its inception, Africa Science's operations have been supported by substantial in-kind contributions of the Editor-in-chief (server hosting charges, webmaster allowances, and administration) and the Laboratory of Sustainability at the University of Montreal (office space). Beginning in 2011, Africa Science will be moving towards a community support business model that calls for broad based support from libraries as well as communities with the mission of knowledge access for all. Please see the Support Africa Science page for more detail.
