Publishers open up digital backfiles for Research4Life users

Our publisher partners are stepping in to help out Research4Life users unable to access older books or journal articles through their library due to the coronavirus outbreak.

News | 04 May 2020
Research4Life offers access to up to 108,000 academic and professional resources, including journals, books, databases and other reference sources. However, some older content is not available online, only in paper on library shelves.

Due to the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, public life has been heavily limited in many countries across the world and people are urged to stay home. As a result, researchers in low- and middle-income countries in need of a particular study dating from, say, 1995, might not be able to get it from their library.

We are therefore thrilled that several of our publisher partners have decided to give Research4Life users online access to their full journal archives until the summer or longer. Sage, Taylor & Francis, Wolters Kluwer are amongst them, just to mention few publishers specializing on social sciences.
