Informing research and decisions through publication of our key findings and methods




Our research at 4CMR is communicated to different audiences in various ways. Our audience includes academics in various fields of research, policy-makers and the general public. We thus use the following means of communicating our findings:

4CMR peer reviewed publications: our scientific findings of significant importance are published in peer-reviewed journals, which can be explored from here. We try as much as possible to provide free access to these articles but this is not always possible. When possible, open access options are chosen, or alternatively, article pre-prints and post-prints are made available on repositories such as ArXiv.

4CMR working papers: we make our own work under progress freely available through our own series of working papers, which are internally peer-reviewed. These are also made available through the Repec and Ideas search engines. Many of these papers are work that we subsequently submit to peer-reviewed journals. 

4CMR briefing papers: we strive to make our work and findings accessible to the non-experts and people in the policy world using our series of briefing papers.
