Africa given free journal access (BBC) {Science/Chemistry}
The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) has announced that it will give Africa free access to its journal archives.

A total of 1.5 million pages and 250,000 articles will be available electronically to African scientists.
***
The decision to open access to the journals followed the recent G8 meeting in Gleneagles, Scotland, which highlighted the need for capacity building in developing countries in science and technology.
***
"I would like to call on all publishers of chemistry journals to follow the lead of the RSC to support young chemists like me with their archives so that we can bring the benefits of chemistry to our great continent," she added.

1. Great move! Those people deserve a leg up, heads up, access,
privilege, & a hand. Circumstances have not dealt fairly with them ever. Thank god for groups like this. May they be the first of many who give access to young kids and young adults - to all sorts of things.

:woohoo:
