The article focuses on the free access to the journal "Thorax" for the low income countries. These countries are defined by the World Bank as low income countries and so will be given free access to articles printed in the journal "Thorax" via website. The wishing readers should simply log on to the "Thorax" website and the software will recognize the country of origin of the request and implement free access. It has been assumed that this facility will encourage submission of papers for publication from researchers in these countries.
