Taylor & Francis Africa was established in 2007 with the aim of supporting and advancing African scholarship. We work closely with local institutions, societies and funders to boost the creation and global dissemination of African research. With an ethos of working in partnership, our long-standing co-publishing partnerships with Unisa Press, Medpharm, and NISC (Pty) Ltd allow us to utilise local publishing networks and build on regional expertise.
