The African Book Publishing Record

Ed. by Lomer, Cécile

Aims and Scope

The African Book Publishing Record (ABPR) is the only bibliographical tool which offers systematic and comprehensive coverage of new and forthcoming African publications in a single source, providing full bibliographic and acquisitions data. In addition to its bibliographic coverage, ABPR also includes an extensive book review section, reviews of new journals, and features a variety of news, reports, and articles about African book trade activities and developments. The titles included in the bibliographical section are arranged according to subject area, country and author. Indexes of publishers and currencies complete this journal.
