DB: Asia-Pacific Database (ASIA)

Update: After some cosideration, we are returning to the name that has served us well for 30 years: the Asia Pacific Database.

The Asia Pacific Database (beginning on Dialog in 1991)  is a bibliographic and fulltext database that provides area coverage (especially for economic development, investment, trade and technological industries) for Northeast Asia and Asia-Pacific. The database is designed to provide easy bibliographic and fulltext access to journals, newspapers, government documents, conference proceedings, press releases, books, manuals, magazines, and ephemera.

All Areastudies.com databases are constantly expanded and enriched, both with additional records from journals that have been abstracted for many years, but also from new journals, new sources and new books, whether by abstracts or fulltext.
