About this Database

Creative advances in science and technology are indispensable to societal development. Scientific research carried out in universities and other institutions is the wellspring of such advancements.

This database archives outstanding research results made by researchers and disseminates them both within the Japanese and wider international academic community. Its objective is to widen an understanding of both process for advancing science and technology and of the importance of scientific research in supporting S&T advancement.

The database is constructed and operated by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) in cooperation with the National Institute of Informatics (NII). It targets research results recognized as excellent by academic societies. Those participating in this program currently comprise the Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan(IEEJ), Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE), Information Processing Society of Japan(IPSJ), Illuminating Engineering Institute of Japan (IEIJ), Institute of Image Information and Television Engineers (ITE), and Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME).

In collaboration with these and other academic societies, JSPS will broaden the fields covered while expanding the scope of the database.
