E-Journals: Developing Country Access Survey

Last summer INASP were commissioned by CDSI to set up a survey of publishers
 within the western world to ascertain their activities and opinions in
 relation to making their content available in the developing world for no
 cost, or at greatly reduced costs.

The finalised report presents the results of this study. As you will see from
 the results, it appears that the publisher-owned initiatives are few and
 many publishers consider it too time-consuming for them to initiate their
 own programmes. However, the survey also identified a great will within most
 publishers to make their content available, and a great interest in the
 pan-publisher initiatives, such as PERI.

The report can be accessed from the INASP website:
