The Research4Life initiative, which provides affordable online access to over 100,000 peer-reviewed international scientific journals, books and databases to university libraries and other institutions in eligible developing countries, is running a survey of users and potential users.
Research4Life comprises five programmes with different areas of focus:
- Hinari – Health and medical research
- AGORA – Agricultural research
- OARE – Environmental research
- ARDI – Research on innovation and technology
- GOALI – Law and social sciences

In the survey, Research4Life wants to hear from researchers who use Research4Life and those who are eligible to use it but don’t, as well as views from librarians and other enablers of access via Research4Life in their institutions. The findings will be used to guide future developments of the initiative.
