AuthorAID forum — The Economist on encouraging African science

There’s an interesting article in this week’s Economist: African science

It covers the “Next Einstein Initiative” and the AIMS institutes, neither of which I knew about. It also mentions a new Elsevier journal “Scientific African”, which is a welcome initiative, even if some of us try to avoid Elsevier, due to its greedy business model.

Is anyone here involved in these structures? What do you think of them?
