**With apologies for cross-posting** For Embargoed Release: November 1, 2006 Contact: Suzanne Wu / 773-834-0386 / firstname.lastname@example.org UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO PRESS LAUNCHES CHICAGO EMERGING NATIONS INITIATIVE CENI provides journals in a wide range of disciplines to institutions in developing nations The University of Chicago Press is delighted to announce the launch of the Chicago Emerging Nations Initiative (CENI), facilitating scholarship throughout the world with free or very-low-cost subscriptions to the University of Chicago Press portfolio of journals. A program of partnerships with select not-for-profit organizations, CENI ensures that readers at higher education and research institutions in more than 110 low- and lower-middle-income nations receive access to vital journals content in a wide range of disciplines. The University of Chicago Press is committed to broadening access to knowledge and strengthening the intellectual exchange on which it thrives, says Licensing and Permissions Manager Kate Duff. In light of rapidly improving technological infrastructures, CENI helps our colleagues worldwide connect to the research and data they need to join a vibrant, informed conversation about important intellectual ideas. Participation in CENI -- which provides both print subscriptions and electronic access -- will replace the University of Chicago Presss B rates, greatly expanding the number of journals available for free or little cost to institutions in low- and lower-middle-income nations. Individual scholars in emerging nations remain eligible for a discount to the individual subscription price. By offering access to scholarship in the social sciences, physical sciences, humanities, and biological and medical sciences, CENI reflects the University of Chicagos long-standing support of communication among and across traditional disciplines. Organizations providing journal content published by the University of Chicago Press to eligible institutions in developing nations include Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA), founded by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization; the Association of Commonwealth Universities Low-Cost Journals Scheme; the Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative (HINARI), sponsored by the World Health Organization; JSTORs Open Africa Initiative; and the New School for Social Researchs Journals Donation Program. The University of Chicago Press is also proud to be a founding partner of the newly launched Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE) program.
