The reach of science in scientific society is limited. Many of the researchers lack access to scientific publications online. \n\nThe initiative by SAGE and many other institutions towards bringing scientific literature online, at the reach of scientists is indeed an appreciable task. \n\nThis initiative would help bridge the barrier and instant access to information. \n\nDevendra Dusane\nhttp://devendradusane.tripod.com\n\n
