NARCIS has been developed by the KNAW to increase visibility and retrievability of Dutch scientific research. This development takes place in close cooperation with the Dutch universities, NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) and other research institutes.
NARCIS gives access to scientific information consisting of (open access) publications from the repositories of all the Dutch universities, KNAW, NWO, and a number of research institutes, the datasets of the institute DANS, as well as descriptions of research projects, institutes and researchers. This means that NARCIS cannot be used as an entry point to access complete overviews of publications of researchers (yet). On a national scale there are plans, however, to incorporate the publication data from the academic Metis-systems into NARCIS. By doing so, it will become possible to create much more complete publication lists of researchers.
Research news from, among others, Intermediair Nieuws, Science Guide and several universities is presented on the homepage of NARCIS with access to the full articles. The news content is refreshed every hour.
You may add the search results to your browser's 'Favorites'. Using an RSS feed you can be notified of new open access publications, datasets and the latest research in your area of interest. The NARCIS widget enables you to dynamically post your search results to your blog or website.
