What is AGORA?



Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA) is a program to provide free or low cost access to major scientific journals in agriculture and related biological, environmental and social sciences to public institutions in developing countries.  AGORA is one of the programmes that make up Research4Life, a collective name for four public private partnerships providing the developing world with access to critical scientific research: AGORA, HINARI, OARE and ARDI.

Check with your institution's librarian or a WACCI administrator to access the AGORA database.
