Besides following internationally published scientific articles, the Austrian Assessment Report Climate Change 2014 (AAR14) also increasingly drew on grey literature, provided that (as in the case of the IPCC) said grey literature is or has been made available.
This appeared largely necessary on a national level, since research on local and regional issues is rarely published in peer-reviewed journals. However, this research can man make an essential contribution to the state of knowledge on climate change in Austria.
Hence, not only a literature database containing all quotes included in the report has been created as a side effect of AAR14, but also a collection of grey literature made available and maintained by the Climate Change Centre Austria (CCCA). Currently this database contains more than 3,500 quotes from more than 8,000 authors.
