Hi all,

I thought you might be interested to know that free access to Economic &
Political Weekly (https://www.epw.in/) is now available through The
Wikipedia Library! Economic & Political Weekly is a social science journal
with archives dating back to 1949.

You can apply now at https://wikipedialibrary.wmflabs.org/partners/71/

As an Indian organisation, with translations available in a number of
Indian languages, access is being prioritised for editors contributing to
topics related to India.

Best,
Sam

As Indian language Wikipedias are focusing on quality content, this is a
good opportunity for the editors to use reliable and high quality sources
while contributing. I encourage all of us to make the best use of this
opportunity and also share the news with editors who might be interested in
these areas (and also, use the other databases that TWL has to offer).
Since the occasion has come, being a regular user and volunteer for The
Wikipedia Library, I must admit that despite we being such a large and
diverse community, very few editors from India or working on
content-related to India are using the vast resources offered by TWL (not
sure about anonymous editors - who are just known by usernames). TWL has
partnerships with more than 50 publishers/databases in a wide variety of
subjects such as social sciences, law, medical, science etc. The list of
all the partners can be seen at: https://wikipedialibrary.
wmflabs.org/partners/, and quick view is available at:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:TWLJ. Please make the best use of
these resources.

For this EPW partnership, many thanks to Abhinav Srivastava, who patiently
worked for almost one year to lock this partnership, and also Tanveer
Hasan.

Regards,
Krishna Chaitanya V.

Hi,

Just to add to Krishna's statement.

Economic & Political Weekly is indexed on Scopus <abstract - citation
database> and it is ranked highest among social science journals in India
and second highest in Asia.

It features scholarly non-open source content (which can now be attained
via The Wikipedia Library) from Nobel Laureates like Dr. Amartya Sen to Dr.
Manmohan Singh (in his capacity as an economist). Also, Sunil Abraham,
Executive Director, Centre For Internet and Society has written for the
journal.

Thanks,

Abhinav
