summary The development of the Journals Online project at INASP is explained. The aim of the project is to increase the visibility of the research produced in developing and emerging countries. This has been achieved by creating websites on which the content of local journals is hosted. The visibility of the research was measured by recording the number of journals hosted, articles, full text articles and visitors. A questionnaire survey was conducted of changes in levels of indexing and qualitative comments from editors were assembled. It was found that the number of journals and articles on the websites was increasing and the number of article views was high, thus indicating that the research was being used by researchers from all over the world.
