Africa-Wide Information is a multidisciplinary index to research and publications by Africans and about Africa. Produced by NISC South Africa, it combines dozens of databases sourced from Africa, Europe and North America. The subject areas covered include agriculture, art, biodiversity, culture, development, drama, economics, health, history, industry, law, literature, mining, music, natural resources, politics, religion, sports, and more.
Publication types include books, journals, current research, popular magazines, reviews, radio and television broadcasts, newspapers, pamphlets, government publications, grey literature, maps, reports, theses and dissertations, and music recordings. Some publications include external links to full text, but for most publications, the database includes indexing and abstracts only.
