Current partnerships: AGORA
The AGORA (Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture) initiative provides free access to more than 400 key journals in food, nutrition, agriculture and related biological, environmental and social sciences to professionals in developing countries where resources are not available to purchase subscriptions.
The project brings together bilateral agencies, UN agencies, private foundations and international scientific publishing houses and is an excellent example of how the public and private sectors can collaborate to have a real impact on solving key development problems.
Founding publishers of AGORA are: Blackwell Publishing; CABI Publishing; Elsevier; Kluwer Academic Publishers; Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins; Nature Publishing Group; Oxford University Press; Springer Verlag; and John Wiley and Sons.
Funding and support is also provided by Cornell University Mann Library, Rockefeller Foundation, the United Kingdom Department for International Development and the United States Agency for International Development.
