About CiNii Research pre-version

NII (National Institute of Informatics) has provided CiNii as a platform for researchers and librarians to discover academic resources.

On the other hand, the Open science is widely accepted as a new research paradigm. The academic resources and research information, such as research data and project data, are becoming more open.

In this context, CiNii Research pre-version is released. This service offers cross-sectional search for research resources, such as research data published by universities and research institutes on their institutional repositories, data on academic papers, bibliographic information, and information on research projects. It employs informatics methods and integrates internal data using identifiers such as DOIs, creating an environment where users can quickly and seamlessly access various resources.

See The function of CiNii Research pre-version page for details on the functions of CiNii Research pre-version.
