Comprehensive Gateway Linking Multiple Scientific and Technological Databases
Based on the concepts of linking, expanding and stimulating new ideas, J-GLOBAL links together various types of scientific and technological information—including research papers, patents, researchers and chemical substances—which have tended to be used separately. J-GLOBAL offers opportunities for unexpected discoveries and cross-disciplinary knowledge by providing a one-stop search service covering a broad array of science sources—both internal and external of JST—and links based on various correlations, such as co-authorship of papers and patents.
Evidence-based Evaluation Methods for Decision Making
J-GLOBAL foresight is a project to connect an array of information, including information on research papers and patents, to analyze and visualize such information, and to provide knowledge to help the national government and private companies determine policies and strategies. J-GLOBAL foresight favors evidence-based evaluation methods, bibliometric analysis, patent analysis, and cluster analysis based on JST information assets linked with third-party information assets.
Large linked data for science and technology
J-GLOBAL knowledge is capable of performing SPARQL search for science and technology information such as research papers, patents, and researchers that are described in the format of the RDF (Resource Description Framework). Recently, J-GLOBAL knowledge published chemical substances data in the RDF format (Nikkaji RDF data) contained in J-GLOBAL knowledge with creative commons license CC BY.
Supporting the Information Needs of R&D
researchmap is a multifunction research information platform covering over 230,000 researchers. The platform offers registered researchers a tool to easily gather information, including research papers and other works. R&R also helps researchers create their own personal Web pages where their CV and research achievements can be stored and tailored for possible funding applications. Furthermore, R&R serves as a virtual laboratory and an online research community to exchange views and ideas for future collaboration. Users can search R&R by name, institution, keyword, and research area.
Japan’s Largest Electronic Journal Platform for Academic Societies
J-STAGE provides access to peer-reviewed articles from approximately 1,700 journals published by academic societies in Japan. It includes both current and archived articles, with some journals offering access to their entire catalog. Around 90% of journals provide abstracts in English, and approximately 80% of articles are available free of charge. Full-text search and forward- and backward-citation links via various databases are also available.
This website stores data on academic societies within Japan in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, Life Sciences, and Physical Science and Engineering (principally, the Associate Societies of the Science Council of Japan). The database contains the details of around 2,100 academic societies.
Reference Service Linking Japanese Scholarly Content with Digital Object Identifiers (DOI)
Japan Link Center (JaLC), the joint project of Japan's information-related institutions including JST, assigns DOIs and provides sustainable access to Japanese electronic scholarly content. The International DOI Foundation appointed JaLC as the 9th official DOI Registration Agency in March, 2012.
This site seeks to inform of the latest information and trends and any news items related to the content of the Journal of Information Processing and Management (founded 1958), published monthly by JST.
Japan’s Largest Scientific, Technological and Medical Database
JDreamⅢ is a comprehensive scientific, technological and medical bibliographic database containing over 60 million records from sources in Japan and worldwide, including journals, proceedings and technical papers. The database records are abstracted and indexed in Japanese with original thesaurus support. JDreamⅢ provides an exhaustive record of research output in Japan.
From 2013, JDreamⅡ online search service was transferred to G-Search, and was renewed as a "JDreamⅢ".
A free service offering Japanese-language searches of major science and technology-related research published within China.
NBDC promotes the integrated use of life science database resources and provides a database portal website, with an aim to maximize the value of research data. NBDC aims to promote the widespread sharing of results of life science research across the researcher community, enabling researchers to pursue their research effectively and efficiently.Through such efforts, NBDC aims to invigorate the life science research field as a whole.
