World Science Day: International Nuclear Information System Highlights Open Access

[2019.11.08, Fri 11:03] Public awareness of developments in scientific research is crucial for building a more informed global society, and the IAEA is providing access to a trove of research on the peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology. The IAEA's International Nuclear Information System is one of the world's largest repositories of published research on the peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology, with more than 4.2 million bibliographic records and access to more than 1.6 million full-text documents. In line with the theme of this year's World Science Day for Peace and Development-"Open Science, leaving no one behind"-on 10 November, INIS plays a vital role in providing open access to information and research. "The IAEA has been an advocate of open access to knowledge since the inception of INIS in 1970," said Dobrica Savic, Head of the Nuclear Information Section. Open science is defined by UNESCO as making scientific research and data accessible to all. It includes publishing open scientific research, promoting open access and making open source software available. A quick glance turns up titles such as "Method and apparatus for the nondestructive assay of bulk nuclear fuel using 1 keV to Mev range neutrons" or "Regional comparison of nuclear and fossil electric power generation costs".
