Arrêt des bases Francis et Pascal au 31 décembre 2014

S’inscrivant dans le cadre du nouveau projet de l’Inist « Ingénierie des Connaissances 2014-2018 », les bases de données bibliographiques Francis et Pascal cesseront d’être alimentées au 31 décembre 2014.

Les archives Francis et Pascal constituées par plus de 22,5 millions de références seront par la suite ouvertes en libre accès au cours de l’année 2015. L’Inist négocie actuellement auprès de ses distributeurs (Ebsco, Ovid, ProQuest, STN), les modalités du maintien de ces archives sur les plates-formes dédiées afin d’assurer la continuité du service durant cette phase de transition, afin que celle-ci s’effectue dans les meilleures conditions.
