Home - The African Open Access Repository Initiative

Welcome to "The African Open Access Repository Initiative".

This repository is a digital service that collects, preserves, and distributes research related digital material, for African higher education institutions that do not have the technological capacity to do so at present, for the very long term.

The repository is managed according to generally accepted repository practice and was built using these recommended guidelines.

Please contact the scholar office (scholar@sun.ac.za) at the Stellenbosch University Library, to apply for a repository hosting service on this platform.
