English term or phrase: reporting and reviewing
This is not to ask translations for terms. I have a question about the following sentense.


It provides a vehicle for **reporting and reviewing** the latest research, ongoing developments and hardware and software implementions in today's digital library and information environments in different countries, as well as trends in usability, electronic books and e-readiness, and it offers practical advice, useful information and descriptions of specific applications from around the globe.

この"reporting and reviewing"は"latest research'のみにかかるのでしょうか?それともin diffferent countiresまですべてを報告し、検討する場なのでしょうか?どちらともとれるような気がして、どうしても読みきれません。ご教示いただけると有難いです。

Japanese translation:it covers everything up to the next verb
Explanation:

the key is to look for the verb. By doing so, we can see that two actions are occuring here. One is "reporting and reviewing x, y, and z" and the other is "offering a, b and c from around the globe."

agree  Minoru Kuwahara: i have no idea what that "it" refers, however, if that is 目的語, i read it is from "the latest" to "implementation" plus "trends". -
