Cross posting from Bioversity: a message from Joe d'Angelo, Journals Co-ordinator at Earthscan:

Dear colleagues,

Earthscan is making a selection of their development journals free to access for researchers and academics in developing countries through the Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE) and the Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA) databases.

The Earthscan journals included in the initiative are Climate and Development , Climate Policy , the International Journal of Agricultural Sustainability and Environmental Hazards: Human and Policy Dimensions .

More about the free access initiatives:

Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE) is an initiative of
the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Yale University. Its mission is to improve the quality and effectiveness of environmental science research, education and training in low-income countries through benefiting local public and non-profit institutions in those countries.

Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA) is administered by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO). Its mission is to enable developing countries to gain access to an outstanding digital library collection in the fields of food, agriculture, environmental science and related social sciences. Institutions that benefit are not-for-profit national academic, research or government institutions in these countries.

* Each Programme accepts registrations separately from institutions only in Band 1 and Band 2 countries. The programmes do not accept registrations from individuals.

Eligible institutions are: universities and colleges, research institutes, professional schools, extension centres and experiment stations, teaching hospitals, government offices, local non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and national libraries.
