Research Papers in Economics (RePEc) is a collaborative effort of hundreds of volunteers in 57 countries to enhance the dissemination of research in economics. The heart of the project is a decentralized database of working papers, preprints, journal articles and software components. The project started in 1997. Its precursor NetEc dates back to 1993. Using its IDEAS database, RePEc provides links to over 700,000 full text articles. Most contributions are freely downloadable, but copyright remains with the author or copyright holder. It is among the largest internet repositories of academic material in the world. Materials to RePEc can be added through a department or institutional archive or, if no institutional archive is available, through the Munich Personal RePEc Archive (MPRA). Institutions are welcome to join and contribute their materials by establishing and maintaining their own RePEc archive. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Research Papers in Economics)
