About Zendy

Zendy is an online platform that aims to innovatively facilitate access to academic literature. It addresses the key challenges that we face with conventional ways of finding high-quality and relevant, academic content. Current online scholarly libraries exist behind expensive paywalls or require university facilitated access. For developing countries, it can be difficult to access academic publications if they cannot afford the subscriptions. Zendy serves to provide knowledge to everyone, everywhere.

Zendy is developed by Knowledge E in a growing collaboration with researchers, students, institutions and publishers. Join us on the journey of scholarly discovery, and reach out to us if you share the same vision and would like to contribute in any way.

Zendy is now available in Algeria, Jordan, Morocco and the UAE with the rest of Africa and Middle East to follow in 2020.
