Climate Change Library

About this campaign

To support vital research being carried out into climate change, Mendeley has created the Climate Change Library – a collection of over 5,000 articles published across 412 Elsevier journals in 2018 and 2019. The articles are freely available until the end of 2019 for all existing and new Mendeley users to download and read.
 
Reflecting the truly interdisciplinary nature of climate change research, the articles have been selected from across subject areas, including the physical, life, health and social sciences. We hope that by making this research freely available on Mendeley we can support collaboration, engagement and further research in this area.
 
This is a pilot initiative to help us understand how we can provide seamless access to articles and support collaboration on Mendeley. We welcome your feedback: let us know what you think at community@mendeley.com.
