Development of an African repository for electronic publications (ODINPubAfrica)

Development of an OAI-compliant e-repository providing access to full-text knowledge items available in African ocean libraries and information centres, partners in ODFINAFRICA. These may include scientific articles, theses, images/reports and other published or unpublished (grey literature) materials, available in full-text electronic form.
Rationale: During the ODINAFRICA-II project all participating ocean libraries were provided with the INMAGIC Integrated Library Management System (ILMS) software. All libraries built their in-house library catalogue using this software (and using a standard format). After quality control the records of all libraries were merged into the AFRILIB library catalogue available on the IOC/ODINAFRICA web site. This data base includes records on all (paper) publications (monographs, reprints, photocopies of articles, journals, theses, etc) available in the libraries. The system does not provide full-text access to these objects. Accordingly to obtain the full-text version of the objects interlibrary loan requests need to be sent to the holding library.

Provide a platform facilitating the development of Africa e-Journals
Rationale: on many occasions African scientists have expressed their concern about their difficulty in publishing their research findings in international journals. Several attempts have been made by various institutions and organizations to start the publishing of African ocean journals in print form. Most have failed due to the lack of interested publishers, limited market potential and other business related reasons. E-journals are able to bypass the need for commercial publishers. This model has proved itself for various disciplines (eg physics, mathematics, etc).
