Access To Evidence (351)

Our panel of experts has reviewed the evidence on 22 areas of sustainable urban mobility. Select your topic of interest in the box above to see the material available and then click through to access the evidence. Some material is located on subscription or pay-per-view websites, but you should expect to reach an abstract describing the content. Where available, free to access versions have been chosen.

For those people who do not have access to subscription sites hosting academic material, we would suggest visiting the website (or variant for your country), and searching for a particular article(s). This will sometimes provide a link to a pre-publication copy, or institutional copy of the same material.

While these links all worked when the database was created we cannot guarantee they will always work. In some cases links may bring you to a website where you will have to do a search for the material.
