Special issue in Nature about science in Africa

I highly recommend reading the special issue that just came up in Nature with several articles on Science in Africa. It is free open acess for everyone for the next month:Nature special issue on Africa

If you are short on time, I recommend reading this short article on how scientist in Europe and US can help the development of science in sub-Saharan Africa. What I am trying to do here is just what it is suggested in the article: to do my individual contribution, that hopefully will make at least a bit a difference. Please read here: A helping hand
