New guidelines set high publishing bar for academics

By Wachira Kigotho. Kenya’s Commission for University Education has issued stringent new guidelines for the appointment and promotion of academic staff in a system that gives heavy emphasis to publication in reputable, peer-reviewed journals and discourages publication in so-called predatory journals.

ADEF - ACADIS Team - Scientific Publications

The team's international publications are in line with the current state of our collaborations. We note that Spanish is just as present as English. This no doubt demonstrates an orientation towards a world of great importance. However, we have more difficulty when it comes to our relationship with the countries of northern Europe, or those who have taken on board the fact that English is the European language of science. We have a proactive policy on this issue. We cannot continue, as it has been the case so far, to limit ourselves to isolated instances of publications in special issues of international journals. Our stated goal is to publish in English, including in French journals. The challenge here is to open the scientific debate with the English-speaking scientific community in Europe. We will therefore work with an established English mother tongue translator so that he can enable us, collectively, to enter into the debates concerning us and so that he can follow, with us, the development of the references we will learn to share.
