History

The website researchkenya.or.ke is a project of the Kenya Information Preservation Society (KIPS), a society registered in Kenya in 1993, whose objective is to facilitate the preservation and conservation of Kenya's national information heritage.

Since 2000, KIPS has undertaken the task of bringing together the records held mainly by universities and research institutions which reflect the post-graduate research that has been completed on all aspects of Kenya. The result of this endeavor is the database entitled The union list of theses and dissertations held by universities and research institutions in Kenya. This database also includes details of post-graduate degrees that reflect research undertaken in Kenya but awarded by universities located outside of Kenya.
