What Do Science, Technology, and Innovation Mean from Africa? (MIT Press)

What Do Science, Technology, and Innovation Mean from Africa? (MIT Press) by Clapperton Chakanetsa Mavhunga
English | June 16, 2017 | ISBN: 0262533901 | 257 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

In the STI literature, Africa has often been regarded as a recipient of science, technology, and innovation rather than a maker of them.

Their contributions focus on African ways of looking, meaning-making, and creating.

Peter Suber has been a leading advocate for open access since 2001 and has worked full time on issues of open access since 2003.
