Economists Online Launched in 2010, Economist Online provides access to full text copies of economics research performed in some of the world's leading economics research institutions. It is a unique subject repository in that it aggregates subject specific content from a wide range of institutional repositories into one subject collection. It does this by harvesting metadata and links to economics material held in the institutional repositories of the academic institutions involved in the EO service and thus makes them cross-searchable and accessible from a central portal. It is also unique in that it contains datasets linked to the publications that referenced them. The members of the Economists Online project include the University of Oxford, UCL and LSE. Cambridge is not currently a member. Unrestricted
