Research4Life provides a Joint Launch Page to enhance your search experience

The Research4Life team has been working on improving their portals and services and is pleased to announce several enhancements for Research4Life programme users:

From the beginning of 2018, all academic institutions registered for any of the Research4Life programmes  (HinariAGORAOARE, ARDI, GOALI*) get access to all portals with their credentials. New registered institutions no longer receive programme specific credentials but a general Research4Life access.

This means that any Research4Life user can now access up to 81,000 resources of Research4Life from all four programmes! 

Research4Life also facilitated the search for contents on each of the portals: From now on users can use a simple search box that allows to discover books and journal articles by keyword

* The Research4Life team is also pleased to let you know that on the 6th of March 2018, the GOALI (Global Online Access to Legal Information) was launched as the fifth Research4Life programme. All institutions registered with the partnership will have access to information on academic legal journals, publications and databases. GOALI is hosted by the International Labour Organization (ILO). More information about the launch can be found here.
