PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Healthcare & Science business of Thomson Reuters today announced that it is joining Research4Life to provide the developing world with access to critical scientific research.

  • Health Access to Research (HINARI)
  • Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA)
  • Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE)

"A partnership like Research4Life is so great because ultimately, it helps to extend the global research community and opens the door to new scientific discoveries," said Jim Pringle, vice president product development, Healthcare and Science business of Thomson Reuters. "We have a profound respect for the World Health Organization, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and the United Nations Environment Programme and we look forward to working with them to bring our scientific research to many thousands of people in developing countries that would not otherwise have access to this critical information."

Kimberly Parker, HINARI Programme Manager at the World Health Organization said, "The special edition of ISI Web of Knowledge answers a need our user community has told us about, so we are delighted that researchers in developing countries will now have access to the amazing array of scientific information available from Thomson Reuters."

Research4Life is the collective name for three public-private partnerships which seek to help achieve the UN's Millennium Development Goals by providing the developing world with access to critical scientific research. Beginning in 2002, HINARI, AGORA and OARE, have given researchers at 4,500 institutions in 108 developing world countries free or low cost access to over 7,000 journals provided by the world's leading science publishers.
