Here at the RSC, one of our most important objectives is to foster and encourage the growth and application of (chemical) science by the dissemination of chemical knowledge.
That’s why we’re delighted to be involved in Research4Life, which helps us disseminate our high quality journal articles to researchers in developing countries.
Research4Life is the collective name given to a series of public-private partnerships that offer health, agriculture and environmental research for free or at low cost to developing countries.
Around 6000 institutions are registered for access to publications through Research4Life. Partly thanks to this improved access, scientific research output from developing countries has increased dramatically in recent years.
That’s great news, not just for those developing countries but for the entire science community.
Chemistry – it makes a world of difference.
