Research4Life provides free or low-cost access to more than 17,000 peer-reviewed international scientific journals, books and databases for scientists, practitioners, students and faculty in the developing world. Since 2002, the four Research4Life programs —HINARI for health, AGORA for agriculture, OARE for environment and ARDI for innovation — have enabled access to people at more than 6,000 institutions in over 100 countries and territories.
Research4Life is a public-private partnership of four United Nations agencies, Yale and Cornell Universities, the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM) and nearly 200 academic publishers worldwide, both commercial and nonprofit. Elsevier is a founding member and contributes more than 25 percent of the content.
