Access to Research for Development and Innovation (ARDI)

Description: The Access to Research for Development and Innovation (ARDI) program provides free online access to major scientific and technical journals to local, not-for-profit institutions in least-developed countries and low-cost access to industrial property offices in developing countries across the world. The Access to Research for Development and Innovation (ARDI) program is coordinated by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) together with its partners in the publishing industry with the aim to increase the availability of scientific and technical information in developing countries. It requires a username and password. Students and employees of AUW can obtain these from the Library.

Subjects: Access to scholarly literature is critical to the innovation process, as it represents an important source of scientific and technical knowledge and thus complements the information contained in patent documents. Particularly in fields such as biotechnology and organic chemistry, much of the most recent and relevant information is contained in science journals and similar publications, which are therefore indispensable for understanding the current state of the art.

Content: By improving access to scholarly literature from diverse fields of science and technology, the ARDI program seeks to: • reinforce the capacity of developing countries to participate in the global knowledge economy; and • support researchers in developing countries in creating and developing new solutions to technical challenges faced on a local and global level.
