Researchers and students interested in large-scale interdisciplinary issues with international implications may find the PURE database to be a helpful resource. PURE is the Publications Repository of the International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), an independent policy-oriented research institute located in Austria with 23 member countries representing every continent except Antarctica. At the time of this writing, this resource contains more than 7,000 full-text publications, including scholarly articles, reports, and datasets, from dozens of programs such as "Human Settlements and Services Area" and "Transitions to New Technologies." Newly published materials are added to the repository regularly, and its archives date back to the early 1970s. In addition to a simple keyword search, IIASA PURE offers a robust advanced search feature allowing users to narrow their results to specific dates, item types, publication status, and other fields. Visitors may also browse the repository by year, research program, or author. Metadata for items in IIASA PURE is freely accessible and available for reuse.
