The full press release about this exciting development is available here.
University and research libraries in developing countries are to benefit from collaboration between JournalTOCs and INASP. Access to JournalTOCs Premium will be provided free for eligible INASP partner consortia for 17 months from 1st April 2014, and will enable participating libraries to develop and manage effective scholarly journal current awareness services for their researchers.
This is the project (the EPSRC funded JEMO project) that I’ve been working on recently. It is a very good cause because it benefits researchers in developing countries and elsewhere in various ways:
- It enables participating university and research libraries to develop and manage their own current awareness service.
- It helps publicise research output from developing countries to the tens of thousands of researchers worldwide who currently use JournalTOCs.
- It helps researchers in participating libraries to find and be alerted to the very latest research publications from over 24,000 scholarly journals, including over 7,600 Open Access journals.
- It helps more than 2,000 journal publishers promote their content, and particularly journal content negotiated by INASP from over 40 major publishers, such as Annual Reviews, Bentham Science, Cambridge University Press, De Gruyter, Emerald, IOP, Mary Ann Liebert, Nature Publishing, Oxford University Press, Palgrave Macmillan, Sage, Springer, Taylor & Francis and Wiley.
