Description: 

PAIS Index was established in 1914 for the purpose of chronicling the world's public affairs, public and social policies, international relations, and world politics.  PAIS International with Archive was formed to prepare and disseminate information, primarily bibliographic in nature, for the use of scholars, researchers, librarians, legislators, government officials, the business and financial community, policy researchers, students, and others seeking to locate published information in the realm of public policy.

PAIS Index includes records from the print PAIS Bulletin 1977 and forward; it also includes print Foreign Language Index published 1972-1990, at which time it merged with the PAIS Bulletin.

The PAIS Index database contains continually updated records for over half a million journal articles, books, government documents, statistical directories, grey literature, research reports, conference papers, web content, and more. Newspapers and newsletters are not indexed. PAIS Index includes publications from over 120 countries throughout the world. In addition to English, some of the indexed materials are published in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and other languages. It is updated quarterly with over 17,000 current records added in total each year.

The PAIS Archive is a retrospective conversion of the PAIS Annual Cumulated Bulletin, volumes 1-62, published 1915-1976. PAIS Index contains over 1.23 million records and covers monographs, periodical articles, notes and announcements, and analytics.
