In 2013 Marlene van Doorn wrote about “A half century of abstracting at the African Studies Centre Leiden” (publ. in African Research and Documentation 2013, 123, http://hdl.handle.net/1887/32653): “Since 1968 the African Studies Centre (ASC) in Leiden, The Netherlands, has published an abstracts journal, first under the title Documentatieblad (1968- 1993), subsequently renamed African Studies Abstracts. In 2003 African Studies Abstracts went online.”
