Ensuring continued support for Research4Life users in Ukraine
In response to the crisis in Ukraine, our publisher partners are concerned with how the current conflict is affecting the ability to use information resources as needed to respond to immediate and longer term needs in the Ukraine.
While institutions in Group B countries are generally required to pay for access to the Research4Life programmes, the partners have now agreed to waive necessary payments from institutions in Ukraine.
We are pleased to be able to announce that no payment from institutions in the Ukraine will be required for 2022, and full access will be available for the coming calendar year.
The Research4Life publisher partners have also taken steps to expand access to information resources for Ukraine institutions. More than fifteen Research4Life publishers who had not previously been offering their content in Ukraine have now extended their offer to the country.
The complete list of publishers offering is at: https://portal.research4life.org/country_offer, selecting Ukraine and the institution category from the drop down menus.
We hope that these decisions help in some small way during the situation that faces Ukraine, and our thoughts are with them in these difficult times.
