The Research Paper Series (RPS) are papers produced from the small research grants process or from the regional projects. These papers are subjected to three external reviewers and a positive review from two of them is required before a paper can be published under this series.
ATPS’s publications are mostly available as free PDF files. You will need to download and install the latest version of Adobe® Reader® to view these files.
