NPG Opens Archives to French Researchers

Nature Publishing Group (NPG) partnered with ISTEX, a project from France’s Ministry of Higher Education and Research, to offer scientific resources to more than 1.9 million French researchers, students, and scientists at 200-plus institutions.

ISTEX’s goal is to provide online scientific literature collections in all disciplines to the French community of higher education and scholarship, according to its website. Its current collection has more than 6 million articles from 2,500 journals. The agreement with NPG adds access to the publisher’s full archives from 1869 to 2012, as well as to seven titles in immunology, biology, chemistry, and the neurosciences, totaling about 400,000 articles.

The National Centre of Scientific Research and the French National Research Agency supplied the Ministry of Higher Education and Research with €60 million (about $82 million) in funding for a 3-year partnership. The budget includes €55 million (about $75 million) for acquiring scientific archives and €5 million (about $7 million) to build the platform for hosting the NPG data.
