International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications
The International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) was established in 1992 by the International Council for Science to "improve access to information and knowledge through a commitment to capacity building in emerging and developing countries." One of the projects of INASP is "getting journals online" for increasing the distribution and visibility of developing-country research. The goal of the Journals Online programme is to build the capacity of editors and publishers in developing countries to manage and share national research content via Journals Online platforms (JOLs). Public Knowledge Project (PKP) based in Canada was used to develop these platforms or websites for online journal hosting and originally began with African Journals Online (AJOL). At present, it also includes Bangladesh Journals OnLine (BanglaJOL), Latin America Journals Online (LAMJOL),Nepal Journals Online (NepJOL), Sri Lanka Journals Online (SLJOL), Philippines Journals Online (PhilJOL), and Vietnam Journals Online (VJOL). Although, the JOLs are initially hosted by PKP in Canada but, it is planned that they will be hosted in their country of origin. PhilJOL and VJOL are now being managed in-country and BanglaJOL began the transition to country-ownership in 2012.
