About the Repository
The Indian Academy of Sciences was founded and registered as a society in 1934 with the aim to promote the progress and uphold the cause of science, both in pure and applied branches. We strive to meet our objectives through original research and dissemination of scientific knowledge to the community via our meetings, discussions, seminars, symposia and publications.
Academy as on date has around 1,500+ Fellows, out of which, past members account for 600-700. It is estimated that the total number of articles published so far by all fellows in various national and international publications could be around 100,000.
Publications of the IAS fellows repository collects, preserves and disseminates in digital format the research output created by the fellows of the Indian Academy of Sciences. It enables the Academy community to deposit their preprints, postprints and other scholarly publications, and organizes these publications for easy retrieval. While Publications of the IAS fellows can be accessed by anybody, submission of documents to this repository is limited to the fellows of the Academy only. Publications of the IAS fellows repository is running on EPrints open archive software, a freely distributable archive system available from eprints.org. Publications of the IAS fellows complies with the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) framework allowing publications to be easily indexed by web search engines and other indexing services.
