Wiley-Blackwell announces 102 additional products available through Research4Life

Hoboken, NJ, January 6, 2011Wiley-Blackwell, the scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE:JWa and JWb), announced today that an additional 88 journals and 24 non-journal resources will be available through the three United Nations sponsored Research4Life programs that provide developing countries with free or low cost access to and training for academic and professional peer-reviewed content online.

The Research4Life programsHINARI, AGORA, and OAREconstitute a public-private partnership between WHO, FAO, UNEP, Cornell and Yale Universities, more than 130 science publishers led by the International Association of STM Publishers, and technology partner Microsoft. The partnership's goal is to contribute to the attainment of six of the UN's eight Millennium Development Goals by reducing the gap in scientific knowledge between industrialized countries and the developing world.

With the additional products included in 2011, 85% of Wiley-Blackwell journals will be available through at least one of the Research4Life programs. Several non-journal reference resources will also be made available through Research4Life, including Essential Evidence Plus (EE+), all Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews (WIREs) and all Current Protocols.

"By adding Essential Evidence Plus, health care practitioners in developing countries will have access to evidence they were lacking to make critical patient care decisions. Access to Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews will encourage researchers to collaborate across disciplines and they will be able to build on known procedures using Current Protocols," said Kimberly Parker, HINARI Programme Manager at the World Health Organization. "New publications and content add greater value to Research4Life, and it is especially exciting to provide researchers and practitioners in developing countries with valuable tools that can make their efforts more effective."

"We are pleased to be part of Research4Life and to be able to continue adding new content and resources," said Steve Miron, Senior Vice President, Wiley-Blackwell. "Access to research is essential throughout the world, and these programs enable researchers, practitioners, and consumers in developing countries to access and utilize the latest information."
