Considerate scientific research as a cornerstone for sustainable African socio-economic development

While conducting scientific research on a continent as diverse as Africa, working with an inclusive sample is imperative. Africa is arguably the most diverse continent in the world, due to its differences in ethnicity, gender, age, beliefs, etc. The Washington Post also concluded that the world’s 20 most diverse countries are all African.  This diversity affects the outcomes of scientific research in one way or another.  […]
