The content can be accessed through Internet services provided by public libraries and academic institutions. However, easy availability of electronic data has resulted in increased information abuse or theft of databases. The paper released by the National Federation of Abstracting and Information Services (NFAIS) suggests approaches to protect online data.

Factors that impact open access to research studies

This paper focuses on the three issues that affect access to scientific research studies - the legal issues of copyright and database protection that restrict scientists from viewing other studies, the use of the legalities for public benefit, and the relationship between public funding of research studies and access to it. Initiatives such as open access, which differ from the traditional publishing model, are analysed in this paper.

The deep web: bringing hidden value to the surface

The information gathered from the Internet may be abundant but does not reflect an entirety.

This paper gives a picture of major web sites that occupy the network and web coverage on various subjects. The paper also points out that 54 percent of the web resources are formed by topic databases. Web sites that cover science, engineering, agriculture and health are named.
