16,000 items now in St Andrews Research Repository
Today the St Andrews Research Repository reached another Milestone – 16,000 items!
The 16,000th item was: ‘Of decolonial imaginings in Black Panther‘, by Muneerah Razak.
‘Of decolonial imaginings in Black Panther’ was recently published in the student led journal The St Andrews Africa Summit Review (Otherwise called The SAASUM Review), which is published on the Library’s Open Journals System platform. The journal publishes all articles with a CC BY Licence so all content is free to read, download, and share, so long as the author is given proper attribution. The Library also agrees to archive the journal in the Institutional Repository as a backup service, but also to further promote the journal via aggregators such as the CORE database and other indexing services.
The SAASUM Review began publishing on OJS in 2017 as an extension to the annual St Andrews Africa Summit, which had it’s inaugural meeting in 2013. Since 2017 the journal has published 5 volumes, with the aim of advancing discourse in African affairs at the University of St Andrews and beyond. The editorial teams over the years have included students from a variety of Schools and Departments including International Relations, Classics, Social Anthropology, and Management to name a few, so the journal has a uniquely multi-disciplinary approach, and welcomes submissions from any topic that falls under the St Andrews Africa Summit’s main theme.
