For other locations of this guide, see the section titled "1.5 Where to Obtain This Guide" in part 2. 12.0 Scholarly Communication 12.1.0 Bibliographical Databases and Information 12.1.1 Introduction This section describes various bibliographical tools that economists might find useful. Note that to some degree it overlaps with the "Working Papers" section. 12.1.2 BibEc: Hardcopy Working Papers in Economics [indexes some 50,000 hard copy papers] BibEc is a very large dataset of hard copy working papers in economics; at last count, it had more than 50,000 entries of bibliographical information from well more than 400 different hard copy working papers series (including such series as the NBER, the Federal Reserve, and the CEPR). These series include those major universities and research institutions. Coverage goes back to 1986, with scanty coverage earlier coverage. The bulk of the data is collected by Fethy Mili, a librarian at the Universite de Montreal. New BibEc entries are distributed via announcement the "Corryfee (corryfee)" mailing list. Like other parts of NetEc, the entries go into the RePEc database. # http://netec.wustl.edu/BibEc.html # http://netec.mcc.ac.uk/BibEc.html # http://netec.ier.hit-u.ac.jp/BibEc.html # BibEc Information: Fethy Mili <mili@ere.umontreal.ca> # FIP Information: Diane Rosenberger <frbsflib@class.org> 12.1.3 CARL's UnCover [covers far more than economics] This system, run by the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries (CARL), now owned by Knight-Ridder, offers a large searchable database of periodicals (claimed to be the world's largest, with more than 4,000 citations added each day). They have about 500 serials with "economics" in the title. Coverage dates back to 1988; if a serial was added since then, coverage begins at the date in which it was added. Perhaps more importantly, the articles can be ordered and delivered via fax, and for some publications, directly to your computer. Credit card payment is accepted (payments include copyright fees). Thus, this could be very useful for those with poor libraries. It appears that most articles cost from $10 to $15. Searches are free, however. If you are using the telnet interface, after logging onto the system move to "1. UnCover (Article Access and Delivery)." # http://uncweb.carl.org/ # telnet://database.carl.org # Information: <help@carl.org> 12.1.4 IDEAS (Internet Documents in Economics Access Service) ["consumer" implementation of RePEc (info on 57,000+ papers)] This service takes bibliographic information from BibEc, WoPEc, EconWPA, and many other working paper series in economics, including the "Fed in Print," NBER, and CEPR through RePEc. In all, information on more than 57,000 papers and some 60 journals is available. The resulting database is searchable, and many of the papers are indexed by JEL category. This service also includes software written by economists. # http://ideas.uqam.ca/ * 12.1.5 Journal of Economic Literature and EconLit (JEL) [info on this essential database] This site, while it does not offer this essential database, does tell everything you might need to know about it. This includes a list of exactly what it indexes (including the list of journals), the JEL classification system, the dates of coverage, search hints, and how to access EconLit (both on-line and via CD-ROM, with a special price for AEA members). Note that EconLit is available through many library card catalogs * through offerings from various third party vendors. These include * Dialog, EBSCO, OCLC, OVID, and SilverPlatter. # http://www.econlit.org/ 12.1.6 JEL Subject Descriptors [lists JEL codes] This site for the "Journal of Economic Literature" and "EconLit" provides these well-known "subject descriptors." # http://www.econlit.org/elhomsub.htm 12.1.7 Univ. of Minn. Econ. Library Discussion Paper Collection [not as large as other databases; said to be more timely] While this database of working papers is not as large as others, (they receive an average of 250 papers a month) new material is said to be entered into it much more quickly. Entries are arranged for entire years (the files are large), and for months in each year (smaller, but more difficult to search). # http://www.econ.umn.edu/~econlib/disc397.html 12.1.8 Working Papers in Economics and Management [info on 25,000 papers (fee-based)] This database of working papers in both economics and management is quite extensive. As of early 1996, it contained some 25,000 items from some 400 institutions, with 8,000 new items per year. One can search it over a number of different parameters. It is a subscription based service. # http://www.warwick.ac.uk/~lyabd/ 12.2.0 Working Papers 12.2.1 Introduction Since more than 800 hundred organizations and individuals have put their economic working on the Internet, it is no longer practical to list each site here. Rather, you should check with the the sites listed here that specialize in working papers. The first, WoPEc, is a database of some 11,000 working papers on the Internet. Thus, it simply collects bibliographical material on working papers at different sites, and users can query it to locate papers. The second is EconWPA, which puts up papers for those who don't wish to run a site. It is the largest single collection of working papers in economics. The third is HoPEc, which specializes in working papers on personal web sites. The very-well established NBER working papers are now available on-line. RePEc contains bibliographical material from all of the above, and then some; currently, it has information on 57,000 papers and articles. However, RePEc is not designed for end-users, but IDEAS takes the RePEc data and makes it searchable for end-users. 12.2.2 Economics Working Paper Archive (EconWPA) [largest single electronic archive] This electronic archive of working papers in economics is run by Bob Parks and Larry Blume, with support from the Economics Department of Washington University in St. Louis. It uses software developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where literally thousands of working papers in physics are stored. This archive is best accessed through the web (though e-mail, gopher, and ftp access is available as well). Papers are grouped in 26 subject areas, and different methods of searching for papers are available (including via the material in the papers' abstracts). In addition, there are areas for datasets and computer programs. Information on new papers and abstracts (see below) is distributed over mailing lists. The easiest way to submit papers to it is via the web interface (e-mail and ftp submission is available too). Papers may be submitted in any format, and the copyright stays with the author or authors. If you have a properly configured web client, you can read most of the papers fully formatted on-line (both PostScript and Adobe Acrobat formats are available). The web server also has entries for other papers which are available on the Net. This site works closely with WoPEc. Papers submitted here will also be in NetEc's WoPEc system, and thus in RePEc. This site has branched out into the abstract and announcement "business." Announcements and abstracts are distributed over the mailing lists that also list working papers, and they can be searched for here as well. In addition, newly announced hard copy working papers from BibEc are distributed over the announcements section of EconWPA. With this feature, you can keep up to date on hardcopy working papers. # http://econwpa.wustl.edu/wpawelcome.html # gopher://econwpa.wustl.edu:70/1/ # telnet://gopher@econwpa.wustl.edu # General Information (with "help" as subject): <econ-wp@econwpa. wustl.edu> # Abstract Information (with "help_abs" as subject): <econ-wp@econwpa.wustl.edu> # Subscribing to Lists Information (with "get help_lists" as subject): <econ-wp@econwpa.wustl.edu> 12.2.3 HoPEc: Home Page Papers in Economics [material from 430 individual home pages] This part of NetEc specializes in cataloging working papers on individuals' home pages. It tries to keep up with this volatile part of our profession. At last count, it had material from nearly 430 authors. The material is organized by JEL categories. # http://netec.wustl.edu/HoPEc.html # http://netec.mcc.ac.uk/HoPEc.html # http://netec.ier.hit-u.ac.jp/HoPEc.html 12.2.4 IDEAS (Internet Documents in Economics Access Service) ["consumer" implementation of RePEc (info on 57,000+ papers)] This service takes bibliographic information from BibEc, WoPEc, EconWPA, and many other working paper series in economics, including the "Fed in Print," NBER, and CEPR through RePEc. In all, information on more than 57,000 papers and some 60 journals is available. The resulting database is searchable, and many of the papers are indexed by JEL category. This service also includes software written by economists. # http://ideas.uqam.ca/ 12.2.5 National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) Working Papers [the largest "traditional" archive now on-line] NBER working papers are available on-line here; this includes all papers submitted since September, 1994. This service is freely available to subscribers of the hard copy series. It is also freely available to computers in non-OPEC or non-OECD countries (this is determined by the "top-level-domain" of the computer, and "reverse name-lookup" must be functioning). The entire "National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER)" is described elsewhere in this guide. # http://www.nber.org/ 12.2.6 RePEc (Research Papers in Economics) [an overall database of working papers] This organization "is 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." There are some 75 members currently, and they include the NBER, the Federal Reserve, the CEPR, BibEc, WoPEc, and EconWPA are all members of RePEc, so any paper listed on a RePEc archive is available to the other providers of information. In all, RePEc contains information on some 57,000 papers and some 60 journals. Currently, "IDEAS (Internet Documents in Economics Access Service)" allows end-users to search the RePEc database, and "New Economics Papers (NEP)" lists new entries. # http://netec.wustl.edu/RePEc/ # http://netec.mcc.ac.uk/RePEc/ # http://netec.ier.hit-u.ac.jp/RePEc/ # Information:Thomas Krichel <T.Krichel@surrey.ac.uk> 12.2.7 WoPEc (Working Papers in Economics) [lists more than 10,000 on-line papers] WoPEc, part of NetEc, is a database of on-line economic working papers. It has links to more than 11,000 papers at different sites on the Internet. Thus, one can search this site, and then click to the location with the actual working paper, and then read or retrieve it. WoPEc is now mirrored (along with the rest of NetEc) in the U.S. at the Economics Working Paper Archive (EconWPA), and in Japan. Its collection of data about on-line papers is part of RePEc. WoPEc is managed by Jose-Manuel Barrueco Cruz. It has received financial support from the Electronic Libraries Programme in the United Kingdom. # http://netec.wustl.edu/WoPEc.html # http://netec.mcc.ac.uk/WoPEc.html # http://netec.ier.hit-u.ac.jp/WoPEc.html # Information: <WoPEc@netec.mcc.ac.uk> 12.3.0 Working Paper and Publication Notification Services 12.3.1 BibEc [hardcopy working papers] BibEc, another part of NetEc, lists bibliographical information on nearly all working papers in economics, and is distributed weekly on the mailing list Corryfee (described in the mailing list section). The entire database is available and searchable on-line at "BibEc: Hardcopy Working Papers in Economics" . New arrivals are distributed via the notification lists at "Corryfee (corryfee)" . Fethy Mili, of the University of Montreal, kindly generates this data. 12.3.2 Current Contents Connect (ISI) [forthcoming publications from many publishers] The The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), best known among economists for the "Social Sciences Citation Index," offers this alert service that operates though the web. It offers extensive searching options, broad coverage (some 7,000 journals), and complete abstracts. Unfortunately, a personal subscription costs $1,500. # http://connect.isihost.com/ 12.3.3 Economics Research Network (ERN) [forthcoming publications and working papers] This organization, part of SSRN (Social Science Research Network), which also has the Financial Economics Network (FEN), Legal Scholarship Network (LSN), Latin American Network (LAN), Litigation Support Network (LSN) and Accounting Research Network (ARN), is directed by Martin Feldstein and Michael Jensen. It "is dedicated to increasing communication among economics scholars, practitioners, and policymakers throughout the world." Via electronic mailing lists, ERN publishes abstracts of working papers and accepted papers in many fields: # Agricultural and Natural Resource Economics # Development Economics # Econometrics # Economic and Business History # Environmental Economics # European Economics # Health Economics # Industrial Organization and Regulation # International Finance # International Trade # Labor # Macroeconomics # Microeconomics Theory # Monetary Economics # Organizations & Markets # Public Economics # Transition Economics In addition, they have Announcements and Job Openings lists (both are publically available). At this site, you can enter information about your paper with a web form. However, they do require that they have a copy of the paper in electronic or paper form before the abstract is distributed. They have arrangements with a number of publishers permitting use of publication abstracts. You can also search both their lists and a large number of papers archived on their site. While this is a fee-based service, you can subscribe on-line. # http://www.ssrn.com/ 12.3.4 New Economics Papers (NEP) [announces RePEc papers] This fairly new program lists new papers from the "RePEc (Research Papers in Economics)" database, which has information on more than 57,000 working papers and other works in economics from more than 900 different organizations. NEP offers offers subject-specific announcements via mailing list when new material is entered into this database. Currently, NEP includes these areas: # All new papers # NEP Announcements, New Reports # Collective Decision-Making # Corporate Finance # Computational Economics # Discrete Choice Models # Dynamic General Equilibrium # Econometrics # Econometrics-time series # Efficiency and Productivity # Environmental Economics # European Economics # Evolutionary Economics # Experimental Economics # Financial Markets # Game Theory # Health Economics # Insurance Economics # International Finance # Unemployment # Microeconomics # Monetary Economics # Network Economics # Positive Political Economy # Post Keynesian Economics # Public Economics # Public Finance # Regional Economics # Sports and Economics # Technology and Industry Dynamics Each of these areas has an editor who reviews the incoming papers. Note that this service supersedes the WoPEc-Announce mailing list. # http://netec.wustl.edu/NEP/ # http://netec.mcc.ac.uk/NEP/ # http://netec.ier.hit-u.ac.jp/NEP/ # Information: John S. Irons <irons@mit.edu> 12.3.5 UnCover Reveal (CARL) [forthcoming publications from many publishers] The UnCover database, part of the CARL organization, consists of some 17,000 scholarly journals. With this service, for a fee of $25 a year, you can receive via e-mail the tables of contents from up to 50 of those journals every week. You can also set up as many as 25 different "search strategies" for all articles appearing in the UnCover database; successful "hits" are e-mailed as well. Institutional subscriptions are available too. You can arrange (via fax or e-mail) for articles of interest to be faxed to you. # http://uncweb.carl.org/reveal/ 12.3.6 Economics Working Paper Archive (EconWPA) [electronic working papers from the largest archive] This archive of working papers has the ability to notify interested people when a submission is made in a given area or all areas. The "Economics Working Paper Archive (EconWPA)" . for this archive in the section on working papers gives instructions on how to obtain instruction for this service. 12.3.7 Financial Economics Network (FEN) [forthcoming publications and working papers in finance] This organization, part of SSRN (Social Science Research Network), which also has the Economics Research Network (ERN), Legal Scholarship Network (LSN), and Accounting Research Network (ARN), is directed by Michael Jensen. Via electronic mailing lists, FEN publishes abstracts of working papers and accepted papers in many fields: # Course Abstracting Journal # Corporate Finance and Organizations # Banking and Financial Institutions # Capital Markets # Derivatives # Real Estate # Finance Teaching and Case They also offer other information: job listings and professional announcements (both are publically available). They have arrangements with a number of publishers permitting use of publication abstracts. You can also search both their lists and a large number of papers archived on their site. While this is a fee-based service, you can subscribe on-line. # http://www.ssrn.com/ 12.3.8 International Journal of Game Theory Abstracts This mailing list contains abstracts of papers in future issues of this journal, as well as abstracts of papers accepted for publication. The details of this list are described in the "International Journal of Game Theory Abstracts (Ijgt-Abstracts)" section of this guide. 12.3.9 Legal Scholarship Network (LSN) This organization, part of SSRN (Social Science Research Network), which also has the Economics Research Network (ERN), Financial Economics Network (FEN), Litigation Support Network (LitNet), Latin American Network (LAN), and Accounting Research Network (ARN), is directed by Ronald J. Gilson and A. Mitchell Polinsky.

In addition, one can search for recent articles among their journals. The section "Elsevier/North-Holland "Contents Alert Economics" (econbase-e)" on North-Holland in the section on mailing lists describes how to use this service. They also offer a slightly more sophisticated "ContentsDirect" (the URLs are below; the first is the U.S., the second is for Europe, and the third for Japan). # http://www.elsevier.com/locate/ContentsDirect # http://www.elsevier.nl/locate/ContentsDirect # http://www.elsevier.co.jp/locate/ContentsDirect 12.3.12 Pool Listing Service in Game Theory This mailing list, which lists working papers in game theory, is run by Dr. Fioravante Patrone, Dipartimento di Matematica, Genova, Italy. He can be reached at the address given below. The list, including past issues, can be retrieved via ftp and the web. # http://fismat.dima.unige.it/citg/citg.htm # Information: <patrone@dima.unige.it> 12.3.13 Springer's LINK ALERT This service by Springer e-mails the current contents of their economics journals. It replaces the previous service called "Springer Journals Preview Service (SVJPS)." # http://link.springer.de/alert/ # Information: <helpdesk@link.springer.de> 12.3.14 sci.finance.abstracts This Usenet newsgroup is "especially for authors of and readers interested in unpublished scientific research papers in financial economics. Authors can post the abstracts of their papers along with instructions for readers to obtain the full paper." Anyone with access to Usenet (and since the latest versions of web browsers come with a Usenet newsreader, this means anyone with a direct connection to the Internet) can access this newsgroup. Unlike commercial services, no fees are involved, so the potential readership is not limited to those who pay subscriptions. This service is in fact a fine example of how the Internet can reduce the costs of distributing academic information. At the site mentioned below, information about this newsgroup and an archive of past postings can be found. To access the newsgroup itself, you only need enter "sci.finance. abstracts" in your Usenet newsreader. # http://www.public.iastate.edu/~arnie/sci-finance-abstracts.htm # Information: Arnold R. Cowan <arnie@iastate.edu> 12.3.15 USDA Economics and Statistics System Through this system you can receive reports from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They are sent within three hours of their publication; of course network delays might delay their delivery somewhat further. In all, nearly 70 reports are available. To receive a list of available reports, send e-mail to <usda-reports@usda.mannlib.cornell.edu>, and put "lists" (without the quotes) in the body of the message. You will also receive information on how to subscribe. For a complete catalog (which describes each report, send e-mail to the same address, but instead use the command "send catalog". These reports are also available at the U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service, described here in "USDA Agriculture Economic Research Service" . 12.4.0 Indices to Journals 12.4.1 Economic Journals on the Web This site, by John Kane of SUNY-Oswego, lists economic journals on the Internet. Sometimes the links only offer information about a journal, but sometimes the complete journal is available. # http://www.oswego.edu/~economic/journals.htm 12.4.2 Journals Indexed in the EconLit This site lists all journals in EconLit (currently some 600), along with their web sites, if available. Currently, more than 460 have web sites. # http://www.econlit.org/econlit/ellistjn.html 12.4.3 WebEc - Economics Journals on The Internet Lauri Saarinen of the Helsinki School of Economics and Business Administration maintains this page with extensive information about journals.

The first is an "alert" service on forthcoming publications. "Contents Alert Economics," is a mailing list concerning forthcoming articles in 36 of their economic and finance journals. For each forthcoming article, it has the full title, authors, authors' affiliation, key words and JEL codes when available, volume/issue/page numbers, the dates for receipt and acceptance of the forthcoming article, and the publication date of the issue. Contents Alert Economics comes out at approximately weekly intervals. Subscription information is below. A more sophisticated version is "ContentsDirect" (the URLs are below). The second service, ECONbase, is a searchable database that allows you to search for current information on articles in the 38 Elsevier/ North-Holland journals. It contains information on articles published after January 1, 1994, and each year some 2,000 articles are added. For each article, ECONbase provides the same information as "Contents Alert Economics." Another service is information on their Handbooks in Economics Series. This includes the tables of contents, chapter summaries, introductory chapters, and a search facility (which returns the chapter which matches the request). Some of their journals are now on-line. This includes # Economics Letters # European Economic Review # International Journal of Industrial Organization # Journal of Accounting & Economics # Journal of Banking and Finance # Journal of Econometrics # Journal of Economic Behaviour and Organization # Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control # Journal of Financial Economics # Journal of International Economics # Journal of Monetary Economics # Journal of Public Economics # Regional Science and Urban Economics Access to them through the "Subscribers Section" of each journal. It is available to "for users at institutes with a fully paid subscription to the print journal." For the Contents Alert Mailing List, send e-mail to <econbase-e@elsevier.nl>, and in the subject line of the message, write "subscribe casecon-c". For help, send e-mail to <econbase-e@elsevier.nl>, and in the new subject line of the message, write "help". For comments or questions, send e-mail to <econbase-e@elsevier.nl>, and in the new subject line of the message, write "Message".
