erials Solutions is working with SA ePublications, a service of Sabinet Online, to index The African Electronic Journals in the Summon service. Aggregating the works of multiple publishers, this collection of nearly 400 journals represents the most comprehensive, searchable collection of South- and Southern-African journals in the world.

While the content is not restricted to Africa, the journals are devoted to research carried out in Africa and encompass six separate subject collections:

  • Business and Finance
  • Law
  • Medical and Health
  • Science, Technology and Agriculture
  • Religion
  • Social Sciences and Humanities

Some of these journals are available through an Open Access model. The Open Access works are included in the related subject indexes, but are also indexed as a separate collection for the convenience of libraries.

Launched a decade ago with 40 titles, the SA ePublications service has experienced a tenfold increase, reflecting phenomenal interest from South African publishers and editors in sharing their scholarly output with the world. Summon service indexing provides visibility to these resources for researchers within Africa and around the globe.
