How does important research reach developing countries?
Cambridge Journals publishes over 300 peer-reviewed academic journals across a wide range of subject areas.
Cambridge works with a wide variety of partners to provide access to over 6,500 universities and research institutes throughout the developing world. These partners include the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL), the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Information (INASP), and the Research4Life organisations.
Enabling access for the developing world is not just about implementing free or ultra low-cost access. One of the biggest problems for researchers in developing countries is slow download speeds, due to low bandwidth.
Low bandwidth can render access impossible even if there are theoretically thousands of research papers available for download, because publisher websites can simply be too complex and capacity-hungry for the IT infrastructure available in developing world institutions.
To combat this problem, Cambridge Journals developed a mobile web site CJO Mobile (CJOm) that also doubles as a low bandwidth access point. Because of its streamlined nature it is much easier and faster to access CJOm via low bandwidth than the full version of Cambridge Journals Online. Researchers struggling with low bandwidth should access jnls.cup.org instead of journals.cambridge.org
