Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications

The International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) was established in 1992 by the International Council for Science (ICSU) as a cooperative network of partners who seek to improve the flow of information within and between countries, with particular emphasis on the needs of developing and transitional countries, especially those with less developed systems of publication and dissemination.

INASP work with partners and networks around the world to encourage the creation and production of information, to promote sustainable and equitable access to information, to foster collaboration and networking, and to strengthen local capacities to manage and use information and knowledge. As a result of discussions with research partners and librarians in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the New Independent States, the Programme for the Enhancement of Research Information (PERI) was born. PERI supports capacity building in the research sector in developing and transitional countries by strengthening the production, access and dissemination of information and knowledge.

Springer cooperates very closely with INASP on PERI and we offer either a "Basic Package" of some 1349 e-journals or an "Enhanced package" of 1865 e-journals to a wide range of Developing Countries at very highly discounted prices for Countrywide access.
