In any country that respects itself, the essential of scientific research is housed within academic institutions. The largest scientific research centers are part of high level institutions. The vast majority of scientists are recruited from the academic community. Therefore, it is important to ask the question of the contribution of African scholars in the global research and especially on the ability of academic institutions and African states to organize the collection of scientific information to boost the scientific and technological progress.
