Open Climate Collection

The MIT Press presents the Open Climate Collection, a curated reading list of open access books and journals that expands our understanding of climate change and environmental studies, in support of the Open Climate Campaign. Climate change is one of the world's most pressing challenges and access to multidisciplinary, trustworthy research is imperative for scientists, policymakers, and citizens alike.

"If we are going to solve these global challenges, the knowledge (research, data, educational resources, software) about them must be open."
— Open Climate Campaign
