South Sudan Knowledge Network



The South Sudan Knowledge Network is an information platform where research on South Sudan is collected and housed. It is a one stop shop for research conducted on South Sudan that is available for public access. It does not include private journals or private research databases.

Researchers, institutions, non-governmental organizations, government departments and others are encouraged to submit completed research to the South Sudan Knowledge Network should they wish to share research papers publicly and at no cost. Similarly, they are encouraged to use the database for their own research initiatives.

The platform allows all types of academic research, studies and assessments conducted by universities, independent researchers, organizations and institutions to be placed on the platform, however papers must have a South Sudan or regional relevance.

The aim of the platform is to develop a virtual library of resources on South Sudan that grows over time owing to contributions by users.

The database will be downloaded periodically and submitted to the University of Juba main library. This enables students and academics to access the database offline, through the library borrowing system and provides access to research papers without needing to pay costly fees to undertake hours of research on the internet
