E-biosci - a european platform for access and retrieval of full text and factual information in the life sciences

Objective

E-BioSci will coordinate European efforts to establish a platform for electronic services facilitating information access and retrieval in the Life Sciences. The platform will foster trans-national cooperation in the development of effective tools for navigation along the biological information chain. It will coordinate pooling of national expertises, development and assessment of common protocols for database linkage and will help generate complementarity between national information archives. Areas requiring further research will be identified. A prototype network will offer users multiple entry points onto as complete a set of abstract and full-text research material as possible and will effectively link and integrate this with other biological information resources. E- BioSci will provide free access, but commercially produced material will be protected where necessary.
