Timeliness of the INIS
Database
Among the Indian nuclear scientists & engineers working on thorium, 64.63% are DAE Community
and rest of them are from IITs, Universities, Colleges and other scientific institutions.
Timeliness is a big concern on Indian inputs. An extensive study on the Timeliness of the whole
INIS Database is carried out. The paper is in press of International Journal of Nuclear Knowledge
Management .

R&D Activities using INIS Database
Publications on Thorium in INIS Database
Indian Publications on Thorium in Journals
• The period between 1980-89 saw leap in publications world over.
• India’s contribution in this decade is an impressive 17.9% of the world contribution
• In recent years, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of thorium for a
modernized version of the nuclear fuel cycle hence a climb in publications.

Timeliness
28.56 % of India’s last 10 years inputs are sent in the same year of their publication year
and rest of the 52.57% have only a maximum of 12 months delay

Database Usage Statistics
•
Staff training is needed especially assigning several categories and
keywords
•
DVD v/s On-Line version of the database
(Confidence level 99.0%)
(Data from Local Intranet Servers)
Records with partial information is found in DVD version but is available in On-Line version

Future Prospects
• Expand avenues
Promotional programmes at various research centers, universities etc.
• Selective Dissemination of Information
Senior scientists & engineers working on reactor engineering, waste
management, materials production and development etc.
• INIS DB Demo at conferences/symposia
• INIS DB Usage Survey – questionnaire
• Advertisements in various conferences proceedings (DAEBRNS)/journals/magazines
