INIS (International Nuclear Information System) Database
INIS, the International Nuclear Information System, was established in 1970 in response to the IAEA's mandate "... to foster the exchange of scientific and technical information on peaceful uses of atomic energy".
INIS processes most of the world’s scientific and technical literature on a wide range of subjects from nuclear engineering, safeguards and non-proliferation to applications in agriculture and health.
- The INIS Database, contains over 3 million bibliographic records and a unique collection of over 200 000 full-text documents (non-conventional "grey" literature – NCL) in 63 languages, including many documents that cannot easily be found anywhere else.
- The INIS Multilingual Thesaurus – a major tool for describing nuclear information and knowledge in a structured form, which assists in multilingual and semantic searches.
