about

What is Hadithi?

Hadithi is an online repository of open access (OA) research for university students, academics and researchers. We build partnerships with OA publishers across the world, obtain their content and then host it on our platform.

While several research and educational institutions have implemented OA policies and created institutional repositories, there still isn't any general repository that curates, collects content and maintains it on one platform. We intend to fill that gap.

Our Mission

Our mission is to maximize the impact of academic research while engaging communities of learning and making societies critically conscious through increased access to quality academic information. In particular, we see our platform as a stepping stone toward enabling equal rights to education for students in developing countries.

We believe that improved access to academic research has multiple benefits: it provides a wealth of information into the public arena for any interested citizen, encourages peer-to-peer learning, enables rich discussions within communities, nurtures an environment of increased creativity and innovation and (most importantly) leads to more transparent societies.
