The African Journal of Information and Communication (AJIC)
Published by the Wits LINK Centre since 2000, The African Journal of Information and Communication (AJIC) is a peer-reviewed, open access academic journal focused on the information and communication ecosystem in Africa and elsewhere in the developing world.
Accredited by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), AJIC pursues its open access objective by publishing online under a Creative Commons licence and by not imposing article processing charges on its contributors.
AJIC is interdisciplinary, seeking to engage with information and communication ecosystem dynamics at global, regional and national levels that have implications for developing-world countries in general and African regions and countries in particular. It encourages debate on various aspects of information and communication policy, law regulation, governance, strategy, and implementation, with an interest in the multiple relationships across knowledge, innovation, technology, economy and society. It is intended as both a rigorous academic journal and as a practical medium to inform actors and decision-makers in government, industry, and civil society.
AJIC issues published between 2006 and 2013 (Issues 7 to 13) carry the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 South Africa (CC BY-SA 2.5 ZA) licence. All other AJIC outputs are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) licence.
AJIC's open access approach corresponds to the objectives of the National Research Foundation (NRF) Open Access Statement and the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities.
