Many African theologians have uploaded their papers on Academia because it allows them to share their work with readers around the globe. As a result, Academia has become an important source of freely accessible material on a wide range of subjects in the field of African Theology. Furthermore, for Academic institutions with limited financial resources Academia is a useful platform for maintaining staff pages.
