Oxford, UK and New Brunswick, NJ – Ingenta and Research4Life has enjoyed a very successful launch of their new content portal powered by Ingenta Edify. The new digital repository will support Research4Life users in 125 low- and middle-income countries with access to academic and professional peer-reviewed content that they need.
Research4Life content portal is a hub for more than 132,000 books and journals related to teaching, research, and policymaking in health, agriculture, and environment and other life, physical, and social sciences, and legal information.
“After almost twenty years of struggling with technology, the Research4Life content portals were in dire need of a complete overhaul,” said Ged Cheng, co-Chair of the Research4Life Technology team. “We are excited that our new content portal will provide a vastly improved user experience in both browser and mobile environments, and advanced searching and filtering capability.”
“Launching a new content portal comes at a critical time for all of our Research4Life users from scientists to doctors and policymakers,” said Ylann Schemm, Chair of the Research4Life Executive Committee and Director of Corporate Responsibility at Elsevier, “After twenty years of commitment to bridging the digital divide, it was urgent to rapidly improve and streamline our users’ ability to access essential research. We are grateful to Ingenta for the robust and intuitive solution created by their team of experts and technical wizards.”
“Ingenta Edify will allow Research4Life the ability to host and quickly launch multiple types of content on the same platform, thereby improving Research4Life’s ability to provide their membership with the content they need in these times when advancing science is so important.” said Scott Winner, CEO of Ingenta. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Research4Life and support their membership as they continue to expand their reach.”
