Keywords:transdisciplinary study, outreach

Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (RIHN) solicits, develops, hosts, and funds fixed-term research projects on pressing areas of interaction between humanity and nature. RIHN promotes coordinated, problem-centered, context-specific, and multi-dimensional science. RIHN projects can last from three to five years; they are always multidisciplinary and employ multiple methodologies, and they are supposed to offer solutions to the problems under study.

RIHN undertake an important task to accumulate the research products of RIHN research projects on transdisciplinary global environmental studies and resources for successors since almost all researchers leave RIHN after the end of their project.
"RIHN Archives" has been developed in 2008 in order to accumulate and charge research products of RIHN. It contains metadata of publications,reports, posters, handsouts and movies of seminars, evaluation reports, obtained data, maps, and so on. RIHN Archives database is open to public.

"RIHN Archives" itself is not only the record of transdisciplinary studies held in RIHN but also the storage of seeds of new projects.RIHN Archives must play an important role on planning new feasible studies to design futurable earth.
