Participating countries: Cuba, Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi and Tanzania
Consortia funded by the EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) JEMO Project
from August 2014 to December 2015
University and research libraries in developing countries have benefited from this collaboration between JournalTOCs and INASP. Access to JournalTOCs Premium has been provided free for 39 eligible INASP partners from Cuba, Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi and Tanzania enabling participating libraries to develop and manage effective scholarly journal current awareness services for their researchers.
Based at the School of Mathematical & Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University, JournalTOCS Premium is the institutional version of JournalTOCs, the largest, free collection of subscription and Open Access journal Tables of Contents.
INASP is an international development charity working with a global network of partners to improve access, production and use of research information and knowledge, so that countries are equipped to solve their development challenges.
Kay Raseroka, a past Director of the Library at the University of Botswana, past President of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) 2003-2005, and Member of the Board of Trustees of INASP, said:
“I am delighted that this project is going ahead. It will help researchers in less developed countries to keep abreast of new scholarly papers as well as giving librarians an important role in the process. Through the inclusion of the INASP Journals Online content, much of which is Open Access, it will also improve the accessibility and visibility of research from developing countries.”
Dr Ian Brotherston, past Head of Enterprise Services at Heriot-Watt University, said:
“I am delighted that Heriot-Watt is supporting the JournalTOCs and the JEMO project via its EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account. JournalTOCs and JEMO are exactly the sort of product development programmes that in our view the Impact Acceleration Account was designed to support”
