RePEc (Research Papers in Economics)

A volunteer-driven initiative to create a public-access database that promotes scholarly communication in economics and related disciplines. It links information on the published and unpublished works of thousands of economists and welcomes all providers of unpublished materials (working papers, discussion papers, research reports, conference papers) and publishers of journals (including scholarly societies, commercial and non-commercial publishers) to place their bibliographic information in the public domain. Many, but not all, documents are available as free downloads.
