Wiley-Blackwell is a partner of the UN’s Research4Life programme (R4L), which provides institutions in LDCs with free or low-cost online access to research journals. The R4L programme consists of four projects:
- HINARI Access to Research in Health
- AGORA Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture
- OARE Online Access to Research in the Environmen
- ARDI Access to Research for Development and Innovation
Many of Wiley’s economics journals are free to access through this programme – for instance the Journal of Economic Surveys is included in the HINARI initiative, which means dozens of countries are eligible for free access.
Are you aware of the programme? If not, and you live or work in an eligible country, please encourage your institution’s librarian to sign up (registration details are provided on each programme’s page). If you have had any experience with R4L or have any comments, please let us know in the comments box below.
