[en] The International Nuclear Information System (INIS) manages, preserves and provides open access to the worldwide scientific and technical information on the peaceful use of nuclear science and technology. INIS, supported by the efforts of the Member States, relies on development and state-of-the-art maintenance of the systems for knowledge organisation (KOS) designed in the form of classification scheme – taxonomy, and thesaurus, both incorporated into the INIS Repository.
[en] Importance of knowledge preservation and sharing has been well acknowledged by worldwide agencies and measures have been implemented to carry out the required task. INIS Repository is one such creation by IAEA for knowledge preservation in the field of Nuclear Science and Technology and making this knowledge available to all at global level. This year marks the 50th year of its creation. During these fifty years INIS has served mankind by collecting, preserving and making accessible the information which otherwise may have been lost due to lack of efforts and techniques. This document presents scientometric dimensions of the literature covered in INIS Repository for the years 2010-2019. Such as year wise growth pattern, submission by country of input/by country of origin, subject wise coverage, literature wise coverage, usage analysis of journals covered etc. Scientometric analyses for the Indian submissions have also been done for the period of 2010-2019. This document also aims to take its reader on the travel time of 50 years of INIS Database - functioning as the biggest repository of documents to nuclear knowledge management and ultimately to facilitate open science. To provide some insights in the functioning of the information system; which will provide better understanding of the processes carried out at the backend as well as frontend of the system. While doing so some of the problems faced by the National Nodal Agency-India have been deliberated along with solutions seeked. This document aims to act as a manual or guide for the newer team members of the nodal agency. Last but not the least this document also assist the users of this repository in understanding the importance of such a repository; why and how to make use of it; how to refine the searches to optimise the results and so on.

[en] The International Nuclear Information System (INIS) manages preserves and provides open access to the worldwide scientific and technical information on the peaceful use of nuclear science and technology. INIS, supported by the efforts of the Member States, relies on development and state-of-the-art maintenance of the systems for knowledge organisation (KOS) designed in the form of classification scheme – taxonomy, and thesaurus, both incorporated into the INIS Repository. In this paper correlation between INIS taxonomy and Energy Indicators for Sustainable Development is presented. INIS taxonomy and EISD as Knowledge Organisation Systems (KOS) are built on different principles, but both have in common knowledge management (KM) initiatives in collecting organizational knowledge and by recognizing and understanding relationships and patterns convert it into usable information tool enabling knowledge to be reused on valuable way. EISD reflect the expertise and joint endeavour of international partnership of five Organisations, led by the IAEA. INIS taxonomy is created in close collaboration between two information systems INIS at IAEA and ETDE (Energy Technology Data Exchange) strongly supported by Member States. The final goal of both products is based on Member State energy potential needs in achieving sustainable development goals (SDG). The domain of this research stays within the energy issues related to climate change and further promotion of energy sustainability. (author)
[en] The bibliographic base INIS - International Nuclear Information System, developed by the International Atomic Energy Agency, has as its only representative in Brazil the Nuclear Information Center of the National Nuclear Energy Commission. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the degree of utilization of the INIS database, by the students of the postgraduate courses in the nuclear area, offered by the National Nuclear Energy Commission. The consumer-centered approach was adopted and, as an evaluation tool, a questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, tables and graphs, followed by their interpretation. The results showed that the degree of INIS usage by the students is low, and the lack of knowledge of the system, as a source for the search of the technical-scientific literature in the nuclear area, is one of the main reasons for its low or no utilization. The low utilization and knowledge of the INIS indicated the need to review the process of disclosure of the INIS in the National Nuclear Energy Commission postgraduate courses. (author)
