The Lithuania-based Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL), which aims to enable digital information access in developing country libraries, negotiated article processing charge waivers for 34 partner countries that will be valid until December 2022. This initiative, which applies to 15 African countries, is part of International Open Access Week, 19-26 October, aimed at promoting open source scholarship by granting access to 111 World Scientific Publishing journals. It is poised to create publishing opportunities for academics who struggle to afford article processing charges (APCs).
