The Access to Research for Development and Innovation (ARDI) program is coordinated by WIPO together with its partners in the publishing industry with the aim to increase the availability of scientific and technical information in developing countries.

By improving access to scholarly literature from diverse fields of science and technology, ARDI 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.

Currently, 31 publishers provide access to around 28,000 journals, books, and reference works for 117 developing countries and territories through ARDI.
