In this week's series on online resources for African Studies present the Database of African Publishers, a freely accessible database developed by the International African Institute (IAI) in association with the African Books Collective (ABC).

"It is aimed as a resource for authors and publishers of books on African topics and countries to locate possible co-publishers for their work in the African continent.

Users can sort the database and search by country (field B), Publisher name (field A), language (field C), type of publisher (scholarly/academic/literary) (field D), or subject discipline (field G). Full contact details and further information are provided for the Publisher where publicly available."
