Christian Zimmerman of the Center for Research on Economic Fluctuations and Employment (CREFE) at the University of Quebec at Montreal, recently established the IDEAS (Internet Documents in Economics Access Service) site as a new end user interface to the RePEc (Research Papers in Economics) project at the well known NetEC (discussed in the January 10, 1997 Scout Report
) meta resource. IDEAS is an attempt to organize the RePEc information about research papers and make it more easily available to the end user. IDEAS contains information about an astonishing number of working papers, including BibEc, WoPEc, and EconWPA, among others. This resource may include descriptive and/or abstract information about the papers, JEL (Journal of Economic Literature) classification, and the full text of the papers themselves (in various formats). Paper information can be browsed by series or searched via an Excite engine. Users should consult the FAQ to understand the differences between this new service and other NetEC bibliographic services.
