International Development Committee



We are very proud to announce that the Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences is now made available to the Developing World.  Cambridge University Press / Cambridge Journal Online is involved in a project called research4life and we are happy that they have now included our publication.

research4life is the collective name for the four programs – HINARI, AGORA, OARE and ARDI – that provide developing countries with free or low cost online access to academic and professional peer-reviewed content (journals, books, databases). research4life is a public-private partnership of the WHO, FAO, UNEP, WIPO, Cornell and Yale Universities and the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers.

research4life has a mission to provide and support online access to research information in health, agriculture and the environment for those in the world least able to afford it.  Our CJNS journal is included within the Research information in Health programme - HINARI (Health Internetwork Initiative).
