CliMig Database

Migration, Climate Change and the Environment

Compiled at the Institute of Geography of the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), the CliMig bibliographic database is the first comprehensive collection of resources which specifically concentrates on migration, the environment and climate change. The project consists of a fully searchable version of the bibliography on the WEB that is continuously updated with new publications. It aims to provide a FREE major hub for researchers on this important topic worldwide. It could subsequently be completed with direct access to non-copyrighted PDF documents, statistical data and metadata, ongoing research projects, etc.

The CliMig database uses the most advanced bibliographic research technologies to identify new publications, but the selection, the entries and the keyword attribution are human made, ensuring scientific accuracy and coherence. CliMig is the output of a professional data gathering path in 4 stages:

  1. Literature monitoring
  2. Selection of topics to be included
  3. Selection of relevant types of  literature to be included
  4. Implementation of specific keywords
