International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

INIS hosts one of the world's largest collections of published information on the peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology. It offers online access to over 3.5 million bibliographic references and 400,000 full-text documents.

The International Nuclear Information System (INIS) was established in 1969 by the IAEA, in collaboration with interested Member States and some international organizations. It is operated by the Agency in collaboration with over 150 members.

The INIS collection includes references and abstracts of journal articles, scientific and technical reports, conference papers, books, patents, nuclear laws, regulations, theses and web documents. 

The scope of the INIS collection covers all areas of activities of the IAEA, including nuclear engineering and technology, nuclear safety and radiation protection, safeguards and non-proliferation, applications of nuclear and isotope techniques, nuclear and high energy physics, nuclear and radiation chemistry, nuclear applications in life sciences, legal aspects, and environmental and economic aspects of nuclear and non-nuclear energy sources.
