#scholarAfrica Workshop Resources Fileset
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
These files correspond to the presentations and materials produced during the Discoverability of African Scholarship Online workshop that took place in Nairobi, Kenya on 10-11 March 2014. It was organised by the OpenUCT Initiative and the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
African research agencies represented included the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM), TrustAfrica, the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC), the African Leadership Centre, the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).

The CSV file is a dataset including data from tweets harvested by Ernesto
Priego (City University London). The dataset includes tweets posted between Friday March 07 15:15:29 +0000 2014 and Thursday March 13 14:04:22 +0000 2014. Martin Hawksey's TAGS v5 was used to harvest the tweets. The data is raw and it is made available as is. It is likely to require deduplication and refining before analysis.
These files have also been independently uploaded to Slideshare, figshare and Zenodo.
