Goal achieved: OSF preprint hosting & maintenance 2020
Published on September 15, 2020 by Priscilla Mensah

We would like to take a moment to express our gratitude to everyone who contributed in covering the 2020 fee for AfricArXiv’s preprint hosting & maintenance on the Open Science Infrastructure (OSF) provided by the Center for Open Science.

With special thanks to:

  • everyone who generously contributed to this goal.
  • everyone who shared our cause or invited a friend to participate.
  • the team at the Center for Open Science for working with us to ensure sustainability of our services.
  • the team at OpenCollective for providing a transparent way to display our financial streams: 
  • our partner organisations, who work with us to build a decentralized, African-owned scholarly communication infrastructure for all researchers on the continent.
  • the AfricArXiv community including researchers who have submitted their work, our followers on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Slack, Github, WhatsApp and newsletter subscribers, all without whom none of our achievements would be possible.
