eJournals Delivery Service

The electronic Journals Delivery Service (eJDS) is a tool that allows scientists at institutions in least developed or low-income countries to access current scientific literature, mainly in the fields of physics and mathematics. The service requires individual registration and is cost-free. The articles are sent as email attachments so as to reach individual scientists who do not have access to sufficient bandwidth to download material from the Internet in a timely manner and/or cannot afford the connection. eJDS is a programme of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, with the participation of leading scientific publishing societies and companies. 

PhysMath Central

PhysMath Central is an independent publishing platform operated by BioMed Central committed to providing immediate open access to peer-reviewed physics and mathematics research.
