Microsoft accelerates free access to journals - SciDev.Net:

"Information technology company Microsoft will give technical assistance to enhance access to online research for scientists, policymakers and librarians in the developing world. This was announced at a meeting in Washington last week (10 July). Representatives from the World Health Organization, the Food and Agriculture Organization, the UN Environmental Programme, and leading science and technology publishers, together with representatives from Cornell and Yale Universities met to officially extend their free access to peer-reviewed journals for many developing world scientists to 2015, in line with the UN's Millennium Development Goals."
