The Scholarly Communication in Africa Programme (SCAP) was a research and implementation initiative aimed at increasing the visibility and developmental impact of a spectrum of research outputs from universities in Southern Africa. It was funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and ran from March 2010 to August 2013.

The programme was jointly hosted by the Centre for Educational Technology (CET) and the Research Office at the University of Cape Town. It engaged in four study sites which were cross-disciplinary and cross-faculty in nature:

The programme was composed of two components: a research strand utilising Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT), divided into four research strands; and an implementation component, which sought to simulate scholarly communication activity in each of the four study sites to facilitate institutional engagement with research communication as well as profile a portion of each study site’s research.

It is hoped that the empirical evidence that was generated and the lessons learnt from the experiments will contribute to the development of empirically based research in the area of scholarly communication within the African context; as well as to the articulation of scholarly communication strategies that are more relevant to the African context and the developmental impact of its research.
