Open access for ADB publications
Responding to user demand for open access publications on the ADB website, the Publications section of ADB.org has been upgraded to comply with the latest open access standards, including enhanced metadata, citable URIs, and clearly displayed license information. As part of this development, the ADB Institute has adopted the Open Access Repository and rebranded it as Think-Asia.org, a website that hosts the knowledge of Asia's top think tanks.
