Welcome to the largest bibliographic database dedicated to Economics and available freely on the Internet. Over 1,600,000 items of research can be browsed or searched, and over 1,400,000 can be downloaded in full text! This site is part of a large volunteer effort to enhance the free dissemination of research in Economics, RePEc, which includes bibliographic metadata from over 1,700 participating archives, including all the major publishers and research outlets. IDEAS is just one of several services that use RePEc data. To see the popularity of some of these services, browse the statistics at LogEc

Authors are invited to register with RePEc to create an online profile. Then, anyone finding some of your research here can find your latest contact details and a listing of your other research. You will also receive a monthly mailing about the popularity of your works, your ranking and newly found citations.

IDEAS is run with considerable help from others by Christian Zimmermann at the Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, which runs and hosts this server. IDEAS uses the RePEc database. RePEc stands for "Research Papers in Economics" and is an internal name for a group working 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. Our archives are interconnected using a set of rules called the Guildford protocol (GuilP). Here is what we call a service, a server mirroring the database built from these archives.

Comments about IDEAS should be addressed to Christian Zimmermann. For corrections, please look first at these instructions. The usual copyright laws apply to all the content of this site and the texts on other servers.
