African Minds is a not-for-profit, open access publisher based in Cape Town, South Africa. African Minds publishes predominantly in the social sciences and authors are typically African academics and thinkers, as well as international academics who have a close affinity with the continent.
African Minds offers a new publishing channel to authors frustrated by a lack of support from traditional book publishers as well as with publishing’s anachronistic and lengthy approach to making knowledge available. African Minds is therefore not a traditional, commercial publisher. The group's emphasis is less on the commercial viability of publications than on fostering access, openness and debate in the pursuit of growing and deepening the African knowledge base.
