Nigerian research content website goes live

Academix.ng, a website dedicated to collating research originating from Nigeria has been launched by Quest to Reality, a Nigerian Information and Communication consultancy.

Speaking at the launch in Calabar, CEO, Quest to Reality, Engr. Iso Bassey stated that the lack of access to Nigerian research content gave birth to academix.ng which is a pool of research by academics and professionals.

“We have aggregated research material originating from Nigeria from across multiple disciplines and published them on academix.ng thus ensuring easy access for anybody who desires good quality Nigeria-focused research. You no longer have to spend time online browsing multiple websites for research originating from Nigeria. Simply log on to academix.ng, register and find the topic you are looking for.”

Bassey also noted that the website is a work in progress as it is continuously being uploaded with new content. “We are signing up new partners on a weekly basis, increasing the number of papers on academix,ng, presently we have over 3,000 papers on our website.”

Speaking further, Bassey noted that the website supports both Open Access and Fee Access material. Bassey used the launch of the website to call on Nigerian research institutions to partner with academix.ng to take Nigerian research content forward and strengthen the global reputation and positive perception of Nigerian researchers.
