Access to research from developing countries

We believe that we need to invest in education and scientific research in places where it’s needed, but where people may not be able to afford it. We achieve this by working globally with organisations such as Research4Life, CGIAR and INASP to support their initiatives. Through these programmes, Springer Nature offers low-fee and sometimes no-cost access to research to contribute to efforts to reduce the scientific knowledge gap between industrialised countries and the developing world.
