It contains records from over 500 journals published in 16 different countries, including the UK and US.

Criminal Justice Periodicals  includes correctional and law enforcement trade publications, crime reports, crime blogs and other material relevant. The database includes abstract and indexing for 250 titles, with more than 100 available in full-text.

International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS) includes over two million bibliographic references to journal articles and to books, reviews and selected chapters dating back to 1951.  Abstracts are provided for half of all current journal articles and full text availability is continually increasing.

PAIS International contains continually updated records for over half a million journal articles, books, government documents, statistical directories, grey literature, research reports, conference papers, web content, and more from over 120 countries throughout the world.

PAIS Archive is a retrospective conversion of the PAIS Annual Cumulated Bulletin, volumes 1-62, published 1915-1976. PAIS Archive contains over 1.23 million records and covers monographs, periodical articles, notes and announcements, and analytics. PAIS Archive provides a unique perspective on the 20th century’s most important public and social policies, such as Prohibition, suffrage, pacifism, civil rights, McCarthyism, Vietnam War, and Watergate.
