Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE)


What is OARE?

Through Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE), a global public-private consortium, prestigious scientific publishing houses, societies and associations are offering one of the world's largest collections of environmental science literature (including up to 10,000 journals and 22,000 books) to public and non-profit environmental institutions in more than 115 least-developed nations of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe.


OARE is coordinated by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Yale University in association with the International Association of Scientific, Technical, and Medical Publishers (STM), and leading science and technology publishing houses. OARE is built and managed as part of the Research4Life initiative, which also administers Hinari, a program launched by the World Health Organization providing research to the medical community in developing countries, AGORA, a program launched by the Food and Agriculture Association and Cornell University providing research to the agricultural community, and ARDI, a programme launched by the World Intellectual Property Organization providing research to the technology and engineering community.


OARE provides research in a wide range of disciplines, including biotechnology, botany, climate change, ecology, energy, environmental chemistry, environmental economics, environmental engineering and planning, environmental law and policy, environmental toxicology and pollution, geography, geology, hydrology, meteorology, oceanography, urban planning, zoology, and many others. OARE also provides access to important Abstract and Indexing Research Databases (A&I Databases), intellectual tools the scientific and professional community uses to search for specific information within thousands of scholarly publications.
