The African Journals Online (AJOL) programme was launched in 1997 as a pilot project and, after a successful evaluation at the end of 1999, it was relaunched in 2000 with changes to its service, with plans for expansion and greater inclusivity of African journals.
The objectives of this evaluation were to ascertain whether the results of research published in African journals were becoming more widely known and used, and to ascertain whether the journals had benefited, either through increased income from subscriptions or other ways, from exposure in AJOL. A number of recommendations for the programme are presented.
