Open access and the developing world

THE NATIONAL MEDICAL JOURNAL OF INDIA VOL. 17 , NO . 6, 2004

We live in an unequal world. The developing world is not at all an easy place for conducting research. Researchers in developing countries are disadvantaged in every respect compared with their counterparts in developed countries whether it is training, funds, laboratory facilities, access to information or opportunities for interacting with other experts. As a result, researchers in developing countries have to work harder under difficult conditions to gain recognition and parity among their peers in the developed world.
