Distribution network

Distribution network

African Minds approaches distribution in the same way as we do production, by taking best-practice traditional methods and melding them with cutting-edge new distribution technologies.

Books are available for direct order from African Minds while international distribution is managed by African Books Collective. Via this partnership, books are listed with Lightning Source in the US, UK and elsewhere making possible just-in-time printing close to the point of sale, and ensuring that African Minds books never go out of print.

African Minds titles are also available via on-line bookshops such as Amazon.

In keeping with our belief in open-access publishing, African Minds makes PDFs of its titles available free-of-charge via the African Minds website as well as on Zenodo, the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) and on Google Books. Selected titles are also made available in electronic publication formats for Kindle and other e-readers.
