Introduction to Research4Life

"What is Research4Life?

Research4Life is the collective name for the four programmes – HinariAGORAOARE and ARDI – that provide developing countries with free or low cost access to academic and professional peer-reviewed content online.

Eligible libraries and their users benefit from:

  • Online access to up to 79,000 peer-reviewed international scientific journals, books, and databases
  • Full-text articles which can be downloaded for saving, printing or reading on screen
  • Searching by keyword, subject, author or language
  • Resources available in several languages
  • Training in information literacy and promotional support

Research4Life is a public-private partnership of the WHO, FAO, UNEP, WIPO, Cornell and Yale Universities, the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers and up to 185 international scientific publishers. The goal of Research4Life is to reduce the knowledge gap between high-income countries and low- and middle-income countries by providing affordable access to critical scientific research. Since 2002, the four programmes – Research in Health (Hinari), Research in Agriculture (AGORA), Research in the Environment (OARE) and Research for Development and Innovation (ARDI) – have provided researchers at more than 8300 institutions in more than 115 low- and middle-income countries with free or low-cost online access to up to 79,000 leading journals and books in the fields of health, agriculture, environment, and applied sciences."
