Our commitment to Open Access

The RPC recognises the immense value of making all published documents, including databases, freely available to anyone wishing to use them. As well as publishing all documents and datasets free of charge, the RPC also places articles in Open Access repositories and submits all its materials to DFID’s R4D web site

All the papers are available to download as both Word (.doc) and PDF (.pdf) files. To download and read PDF files you will need a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website. Files have been kept as light as possible, so they are easy to download on a slow connection. However, if you have problems downloading, please contact us:
