Sponsorship and access programs
At Faculty of 1000 Ltd we are committed to the ideal of making access to the scientific literature available to all countries. As part of this vision we offer free subscriptions to F1000Prime to institutions in the poorest countries in the world, as part of the World Health Organization’s HINARI program.
Institutes in the following countries are eligible for free subscriptions. These countries have a GNI per capita of less than US$1,600 per annum. To register your institution for free access, visit the HINARI registration page.

"Ready access to contemporary scientific knowledge is a recognized major impediment for the developing world to reach sustainable self-sufficiency. The F1000Prime sponsorship initiative offers a powerful instrument to bridge this unacceptable divide."
