Online Access to Research in the Environment (OARE), an international public-private consortium coordinated by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Yale University, and leading science and technology publishers, enables developing countries to gain free or low cost access to one of the world's largest collections of proprietary environmental science literature.
Launched in October 2006, OARE has a mission to improve the quality and effectiveness of environmental research, education and training in low-income countries.
Institutions that would like to access full-text articles and use the A&I database search tools must register with OARE and receive an institutional password. Upon successful completion of the registration process, all employees, staff, faculty, administrators and students of that institution may use the password to access OARE resources. A password is not required to access journal abstracts.
