Begun in 2017 and launched in June 2018, the African Education Research Database (AERD) is "a curated collection of research undertaken in the past decade by scholars based in sub-Saharan Africa." This database, which seeks "to raise the visibility of African research" and lower barriers to accessing that research, is a collaborative initiative between the Research for Equitable Access and Learning (REAL) Centre at the University of Cambridge and Education Sub Saharan Africa (ESSA). Here, readers will find more than 2,200 items (as of this writing) of "social science research with implications for educational policy and practice," including peer-reviewed articles, doctoral dissertations, book chapters, and working papers, all produced since 2007, and the database is regularly updated with new material. Visitors can search and filter AERD by keyword, country, and research methods, and there is also an interactive map showing the number of studies available from each country. While the majority of its contents are in English, the AERD also contains some research in French and Portuguese.
