PAIS Archive is now available through the CSA Illumina platform. The database supplements PAIS International, enabling researchers, students, librarians, government agencies, and others to conduct complete research in the field of global public policy, world affairs, international relations, and history since 1915.
Information in PAIS International and PAIS Archive covers topical public and social issues in addition to the making and evaluating of public policy. Worldwide in geographic scope, PAIS International and PAIS Archive index publications in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish that deal with public affairs. PAIS International currently includes records from the print PAIS Bulletin 1977 and forward; and from the PAIS print Foreign Language Index published 1972-1990, at which time it merged with the PAIS Bulletin. The complete PAIS Archive contains more than 1.2 million records from the print PAIS Bulletin covering the years 1915-1976. (An initial release earlier this year provided backfiles to 1937.)
