IDEAS is a service providing information about working papers and published research to the economics profession. IDEAS stands for "Internet Documents in Economics Access Service", which is not very good English, but you get the idea... The data available here are contributed at no charge by volunteers and made available freely.

This service uses the complete data from the RePEc database, which includes bibliographic data contributed by over 250 archives, including the well known EconWPA, Fed in Print, IMF, NBER, CEPR, the central banks of the US, England, Australia, Canada and other countries, and economics departments at MIT, Rochester, Northwestern, Berkeley, UCLA, Maryland, Brown, Iowa, Caltech, Boston College, Toronto, Western Ontario, LSE, Bonn, Pompeu Fabra, Tokyo, Seoul, and many others. IDEAS now also covers over 150 journals, including the American Economic Review, Econometrica, Journal of Political Economy, and Quarterly Journal of Economics among many others. The major participating publishers currently are Springer, University of Chicago Press, MIT Press, the American Economic Association and Oxford University Press.

IDEAS is run with considerable help from others by Christian Zimmermann at the Department of Economics of the University of Connecticut. IDEAS uses the RePEc database. RePEc stands for "Research Papers in Economics" and is an internal name for a group working on on the provision of electronic working papers. We are concerned that the uncoordinated provision of archives is inefficient. We believe that joining forces is a good thing because we can learn from each other how to do things better and promote our work together. Our archives are interconnected using a set of rules called the Guildford protocol (GuilP). Here is what we call a service, a server mirroring the database built from these archives.
