Education in Africa: Home

By Nazma M. Ali and Yuusuf Caruso

Education in Africa

This guide on research trends in education in Africa is primarily for readers with access to Columbia University Libraries through the catalog. The guide also links to open access databases, repositories and finding aids, citation management tools, and other resources for finding journal articles, dissertations, and research reports.

The focus is on educational research in Africa ***published in English***, although many of the texts cited are comparative and interdisciplinary, and the recommended tools link to sources in French, Portuguese, and many other languages. We have also chosen to highlight a variety of formats and types of sources to inspire a researcher's curiosity and enthusiasm.
