HSRC CURRENT PROJECTS
Social Science that makes a difference
With a service record of more than 50 years, the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) is the largest dedicated research institute in Africa focusing on the social sciences and humanities.
Our Divisions & Centres
Our work finds expression through the following divisions and centres:
The HSRC Research Data Service provides a digital repository of the HSRC's research data in support of evidence-based human and social development.
The HSRC Institutional Repository is an important tool that the HSRC utilises to preserve and disseminate its documents. Different types of publications including scholarly research outputs are collected, preserved and distributed in a digital format.
Research funders are increasingly asking about real measurable benefits – which requires impact assessments of the interventions, programmes, projects and policies that emerge from funded research. There is thus increasing demand for monitoring, measurement, analysis, and reporting on impact.
