Scientific and technical information tools
The visibility of scientific publications depends on the tools used and the publishers behind these tools. The main known tools are the Web of Science , developed by Thomson Reuters based on the Science Citation Index , and Scopus, developed by Elsevier. Inria has developed its own tools in order to make it easier to search for and disseminate research publications.
HAL-Inria: open archives of our scientific output
The HAL-Inria open archive was launched on 27 April 2005. It is based on the HAL (Hyper Article onLine) tool developed by the Direct Scientific Communication Centre (CCSD) of the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). It provides scientists with an environment where they can deposit and view publications on ICST (Information and Communication Science and Technology).
Ralyx: a repository of our research teams' activity reports
Each project-team is obliged to produce an activity report each year, which is stored on Ralyx. This activity report is a way of reviewing the work done each year. It also acts as a shop window for the activities of the institute's project-teams, in particular for industrial partners.
OPAC: the institute's library catalogue
OPAC is a web service used to perform searches in the Inria documentation centres' national catalogue. It also provides regular information about the new titles acquired by Inria.
