Studying Africa is primarily aimed at university students and researchers, but other groups, such as teachers and pupils at upper secondary schools and folk high schools, librarians, journalists and aid workers, may also find it useful. The ambition is to provide a clear and practical guide to literature that is reasonably easy to access. This new edition is thoroughly revised and covers information sources from 2010 to 2013. For older references, please see the previous edition of Studying Africa (2011). In this edition all the chapters about general sources of information have been revised. The chapters provide practical guidance on literature and fact searches, with the aid of bibliographies, databases, handbooks, Internet, periodicals, statistics and official documents. The selection of material has a broad academic aim and both printed and Internet-based sources are dealt with.
This edition will only be available online. Chapters can be downloaded for free in full text format from DiVA, the Academic Archive Online. http://nai.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?pid=diva2:703070.
