Once the group is able to start sponsoring field-based research projects, the next step will be to encourage the researchers to produce an output around completion of every project sponsored by the group.
Events may also have some publishable output linked with the group.
We will also host events and conferences geared specifically for use as a testing bed for WIP research project outputs.
The Africa Group will also hold a call for papers – hopefully at least one or twice each academic year.
LIAS Working Paper Series
We are currently discussing with LIAS to see if we could publish outputs from our field-based research projects within a special edition of the LIAS Working Paper Series, particularly for PGRs.
We are hoping to appoint PGR editors which would give them a good experience here.
