AGORA initiative expanded
The Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA) initiative was set up by FAO in 2003 together with major publishers to provide free or low-cost access to leading scientific journals in agriculture and related biological, environmental and social sciences to public institutions in developing countries. Originally dealing with 69 low-income countries, it has now been expanded in its second phase to include universities, colleges, research institutes and government ministries as well as non-governmental organisations in an additional 37 lower-middle income countries. The initiative provides access to over 900 journals, many dealing directly or indirectly with biotechnology. See http://www.aginternetwork.org/en/index.php (in Arabic, English, French or Spanish) or contact agora@fao.org for further information.
