Summary

In many developing countries, computers and decent phone lines are scarce, and subscriber-only Web sites bar people from the best data. Now a new Web site, officially launched in London this week, aims to bridge the gap with scientific news and information relevant to developing nations (see Editorial on p. 2053). The site, known as SciDev.Net (www.scidev.net), is also intended to help foster scientific cooperation.
