Online Access to Research in the Environment to support developing countries

Following the paths blazed by HINARI and AGORA, the UNEP, Yale University and more than 200 publishers have established OARE - 'Online Access to Research in the Environment'.

According to the press release and web site, OARE makes available over 1000 scientific journal titles to 70 low income countries. Another 36 countries will be added by 2008.

OARE aims to contribute to the development of expert professional and academic communities and an informed public, encourage scientific creativity and productivity, and facilitate the development of progressive science-based national policies. It will help enable countries to build their own higher education programs in the environmental sciences, educate their own leaders, conduct their own research, publish their own scientific findings, and disseminate information to policy makers and the public.
