INIS-- International Nuclear Information System -- new database

| No Comments

INIS Online Database from 1970 to date. This new resource was added to our Princeton University Library’s “Articles and Databases” page this summer, and contains ~2.8 million records on peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology. >850,000 papers are full-text. Sponsored by the IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency, there is world-wide coverage. Approximately 1/2 of the records come from journals, the rest are technical reports, conference proceedings, patents, theses, and preprints, known as “grey” or “non-conventional” literature. Almost 2200 journals are scanned for inclusion, but 580 are key.

The portions especially applicable to environmental sciences are:

8% economic, environmental, legal and safeguards

7% fuel cycle waste and radiochemistry

13% nuclear power and safety
