Himalayan Research Papers Archive (HRPA)
UNM University Libraries Electronic Journal System
Sharing and Disseminating Knowledge on South-South Cooperation and Development

The NSC-UNM's Himalayan Research Papers Archive portal welcomes scholars to upload their research working papers. This portal is designed to showcase academic research work of scholars who are interested to disseminate their work for wider citation and readership.

We welcome papers that are in a finished manuscript form, preferably not yet already published. For a world-wide connectivity and wider academic outreach, this portal uses the UNM's
University Libraries Electronic Journal Portal System.


We accept working papers on a wide variety of topics: development, health, poverty, sustainability, democracy, conflict, climate change, environment, and polical economy. There is no geographic area preference even though we encourage work on policy issues related to the Hmalayan region and the countries in South Asia.

Cross-country analysis will be highly encouraged especially with a focus on the low income economies with a South-South theme --Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

Working Paper Manuscript Upload Instruction

To submit a manuscript, existing users may "log-in" and click the New Submission link to begin the upload process. New users will need to "register" first.
