Home of the RePEc Input Service


This service provides the opportunity for institutions to participate in RePEc even if they are unable to provide metadata in the standard way, that is by opening a RePEc archive. This service is meant to be a last resort. This service only hosts the metadata about these working papers and journal articles, not the full texts. Individuals should use MPRA.
