Mission and Objectives

The development of this repository has three main objectives:


1. Increase the visibility, accessibility and dissemination of Portuguese research results
Research results from the institutions that are part of the Portuguese system of Science, Technology and Higher Education are dispersed in thousands of different publications (journals, conference proceedings, etc.) and part of this scientific output has limited accessibility or availability. The development of a meta-repository that allows users to search and access scientific output in an easy way could be a positive contribution to users and organizations alike that are aggregated to this repository.
If we consider that researchers are an example of good practices, information and knowledge to the business, family and society, spreading the research output can have also a strong effect.

This way, a national repository could contribute to increase the visibility, accessibility and dissemination of research results and also be a strong ally in the improvement of Portuguese scientific results.

 

2. Facilitate access to information about Portuguese scientific output
The interoperability of the repository with other information systems from the Portuguese scientific infrastructure can also facilitate the access to information about Portuguese scientific output.
The repository is integrated with the DeGois project, a platform to manage and store curriculum vitae of all Portuguese researchers.


3. Integrate Portugal in the wide range of international initiatives in this domain
The national scientific repository allows Portugal to integrate a wide range of international initiatives in this domain and facilitates the interoperability and cooperation with research centers, funding bodies, and higher education institutions in Europe and all over the world.
