For supporting web-based scholarly communication worldwide

The Scientific Information Office is a new central scientific service unit responsible for the strategic planning, development and operation of the digital infrastructures necessary for providing NIMS with scientific information, and for supporting web-based scholarly communication worldwide.

Suppling institutes with information, store data, publish research results

Our mission is to create a modern, electronic infrastructure to supply institutes with information, store data, publish research results and establish web-based scientific collaboration, while taking into account the interests of those institutes and their divisions. This includes:

  • Acquisition and digitization of scientific literature
  • Development of a web-based hub to facilitate communication between scientists and the dissemination of research results
  • Publication of the peer-reviewed journal STAM
  • Institutional repository and digital rights management
