Public Affairs Information Service (PAIS) Archive database includes publications from over 120 countries worldwide. In addition to English, some of the indexed materials are published in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish. In 1998, PAIS International started indexing and abstracting electronic journals and acting as a peer-review/access for full-text downloadable ejournals.
