Research for All in the Global South

Research for All special series.


Research for All is very pleased to attract authors and readers from the global south. This can disrupt norms that have developed in the global north by highlighting locally rooted knowledge that deserves attention to ensure fairness in knowing around the world. These authors highlight opportunities that appear in resource-poor settings. Some of these contributions came from authors who first shared their ideas and benefited from further discussion at the on-line conference for Public Communication of Science and Technology, 2021+1. Authors from this international network take advantage of our open access policy that allows authors and readers to engage with the journal with paying charges either from research teams or from libraries.
