Yes, we are always pleased to provide HINARI users with access to new journals.

Can I make suggestions to HINARI for finding a journal?

Yes, we encourage you to send suggestions that will help us to improve HINARI. The purpose of HINARI is to serve its participants. The more feedback we receive from you, the better the system will be able to meet your information needs.

What are the requirements for becoming a partner publisher?

The main requirements for participation are that the journals be in the biomedical and related social science fields, and that they be available online in their full text version. Please write to us at for further details on submitting your journals to HINARI.

Is there a list of all of the HINARI journals?

If you go to the HINARI Full-text journals, databases and other resources, there is a link to View complete list of journals.

What are the free resources offered to all eligible countries?

If you are in a Group A country, area, or territory, your institution receives the resources for free. If you are in a Group B country, area, or territory, your institution may decide to pay the membership fee of US$ 1500 to receive all information resources offered to your country, area, or territory or may decide not to pay the membership fee. In this latter case, your institution will still be able to access a smaller group of the content. Members of your institution may use the username provided by HINARI to access these resources. Some publishers allow access to their resources through HINARI even though the institution has not paid its annual fee with HINARI.

What if I live in a developing country that is not eligible?

Even if you are not eligible for full access to HINARI, there are many free, full-text information resources listed on our website, and showing as accessible “Full access to this content for everyone”. The abstracts of all journals listed on the HINARI website are freely accessible to all users. You do not need a username to access the abstracts. HINARI does not provide usernames to institutions in countries that are not eligible.
