The AuthorAID project at INASP: building on a holistic approach to research communication
The AuthorAID project at the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) is a pilot project which aims to increase the success rate of developing‐country researchers in obtaining publication and, ultimately, to increase the visibility and influence of research undertaken within the developing world. Through providing mentoring, training, resources and networking, the project supports early career researchers with writing up and disseminating their work. As part of INASP's PERii programme, the project both links and complements the other components of INASP's work. This paper outlines the AuthorAID project and explores its symbiotic relationship with INASP and its holistic approach to supporting research communication in developing countries.
