An agreement between the international development charity INASP and SIAM (the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) will provide access to SIAM journals in 16 African and Asian countries at no charge. Through provision of these highly acclaimed journals, INASP and SIAM are supporting each other in their mutual missions of advancing research and education internationally.

For professionals and students in 1,350 participating institutions, access to SIAM journals will enhance learning and understanding of the latest in mathematical and computational methods and techniques for science, engineering, industry and society. 

This access will fill recognised information gaps across institutions; INASP heard from academics and librarians at partner institutions throughout the region, as they welcomed the news.

Anne Powell, INASP's programme manager for information access and publisher liaison, commented: 'We're so pleased that our discussions have led to a useful outcome on behalf of all of our library consortia and members. SIAM has been eager to support our researchers, and our working relationship has been easy and productive.'

David Marshall, SIAM's publisher, added: 'Applied mathematics and computational science are essential in solving many real-world problems. SIAM’s partnership with INASP will therefore help us meet our goal of advancing the application of mathematics and computational science throughout the world.'
