This blog is part of a showcase of exhibits from South Asian think tanks participating in the Think Tank Initiative’s Policy Engagement and Communications (PEC) programme. You may view other entries on the PEC Showcase Overview Page. 

Access to peer reviewed literature is a very important element in planning, designing and carrying out research. Peer reviewed literature is also an important source for developing organizational research portfolios and standards. Reading and following peer reviewed literature is an important element in developing the careers of individual researchers as well. Therefore accessing, understanding, interpreting and sharing peer reviewed literature is an essential cultural element in a research institute that can be developed, nurtured and supported.

This guide on Accessing Peer reviewed articles through open access provides researchers with some useful tips on how to locate open access information sources and download peer-reviewed articles on climate change.
