Abstract

The Scientific Database System (SDBS) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences started in 1986 as the key project in the National Five Year Plan for 1986-1990 and followed the establishment of a chemistry database, one of the important projects placed in the National Programmer for Basic Sciences Development earlier in the period from 1978 to 1985. The growth of non-bibliographic and bibliographic databases implemented in the Academia Sinica has been fairly rapid over the past ten years. This paper describes briefly the project's current major activities, database products and their management system.
