Bridging Academic landscapes

We provide novel insights into the management and communication of Research. Our goal is to equip researchers with the skills and enthusiasm they need to pursue a joyful career. 

As a scholarly training and consulting organization, Access 2 Perspectives is providing novel insights into the globally inclusive management and communication of Research based on Open Science principles and standards.

One of our key initiatives launched in 2018, AfricArxiv is a community-led digital archive for African research, working towards building an African-owned open scholarly repository; a knowledge commons of African scholarly works. On behalf of AfricArXiv, we partner with scholarly stakeholders from within and outside Africa to establish a scholarly discoverability and publishing platform that primarily serves African scholarly stakeholders, such as researchers, research institutions, libraries, publishers, and policymakers, while at the same time informing the global scholarly community by fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange.

I work with researchers who struggle with scientific project planning, have difficulties in positioning themselves within their research discipline and don’t know where to start when it comes to research data management and scholarly writing their thesis or a research article. Researchers who work with me seek clarity and guidance on soft skills that are relevant in research project planning and management to be able to transfer the acquired knowledge to societal stakeholders who can then benefit from their discoveries.

What separates my service from other trainers and consultants is that I ground my approach in Open Science principles and data management and because of this, researchers receive top-of-the-art and clear instructions and information that is compliant with the current publishing and funding requirements. I help them to establish best scientific practices for efficient, transparent, and F.A.I.R. (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) research output.
