IDEAS is run with considerable helpfrom othersbyChristian Zimmermannat theResearch Division of theFederal Reserve Bank of St. Louis , which runs and hosts this server. IDEAS uses the RePEc database.RePEc stands for “Research Papers in Economics” and is an internal name for a group working on the provision of electronic working papers. We are concerned that the uncoordinated provision of archives is inefficient. We believe that joining forces is a good thing because we can learn from each other how to do things better and promote our work together. Our archives are interconnected using a set of rules called the Guildford protocol (GuilP). Here is what we call a service, a server mirroring the database built from these archives.
