How is your vital partnership between Research4Life and your institutional library staff powering effective research in developing countries?
Research4Life announces a competition to recognize the role of librarians and library staff in building the capacities of Research4Life users and in impacting the overall work of their institutions.
Since 2001, the Research4Life initiative has grown and developed into a partnership of over 200 scientific publishers around the globe, giving researchers at more than 6,000 institutions in over 100 developing world countries and territories free or low cost online access to almost 30,000 peer-reviewed international scientific journals, books, and databases provided by the world’s leading science publishers.
In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of one of its programmes – Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA) – Research4Life is holding a special competition to highlight the dedication and capacity building activities developed by those who promote and assist researchers in their institution in accessing vital information.
The Research4Life Librarian Competition is open to all librarians and library staff whose institution is a user of Research4Life Programmes – Access to Research in Health (HINARI), Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA), Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE) and Access to Research for Development and Innovation (ARDI).

If you aren’t yet registered with Research4Life, but are in an eligible country, area, territory, write to one of the Research4Life Programmes here.
