NARCIS provides access to Open Access and other publications taken from the repositories of all Dutch universities, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), and a number of research institutions. If you want to submit your publications to NARCIS, you should contact the repository manager at your employing institution. For contact details, see the list of repositories.
The Digital Author Identification (DAI) is a unique national number assigned to every author working at a Dutch university or research institute. The DAI ensures that all of an author's publications can be traced, regardless of how his or her name is reported on individual publications; it also distinguishes between authors who have the same name. In NARCIS, a researcher's DAI is reported on his or her researcher page.
Please see for example the DAI on the personal page of Prof.dr.H.J. Bennis.
If you don't have a DAI, then please contact the repository manager of your institution.
Your publications will be listed on your researcher page if the institution you work for uses the Digital Author Identification (DAI) in its repository (see also question 2).
If you wish to change your personal details or project data, you can submit the amendment form. There is a form available on every researcher page and every research project page. To go to the form, click on the button 'Update this data' on the lower left-hand side of the researcher or project page. If you have questions about publications or datasets, please contact the repository managers of the participating institutions. For contact details, see the list of repositories.
If you want to report your area of expertise or research projects, you should use these forms.
You can e-mail your photograph or a new photograph to the editors of NARCIS at email@example.com.
You can save your search results in various ways. You will see a button on the right that says 'Save search results'. If you click on this, you get a drop-down menu listing the various archiving options: RSS feed (see question 8), Widget (see question 9) and 'Add to favorites' (see question 10).
After performing a search, click on the button 'Save search results'. This will take you to the RSS feed, which will allow you to stay abreast of all the latest Open Access and other publications, datasets and research in your area of interest. Researchers can generate a personal list of publications.
A widget is a piece of programming code that users can embed into a website or blog to perform a specific function. The NARCIS Widget allows you to display Open Access and other publications, research projects, individuals or datasets in NARCIS dynamically on your blog or website. You will find the NARCIS Widget by clicking the button 'Save search results'. You can then copy the widget code to your website or blog.
You can simply save your search results in your browser's list of 'favorites' (or 'bookmarks'; the name depends on the browser). After performing a search, click on the button 'Save search results', and then click on 'Add to favorites'. Give the search results an easily identifiable name, click 'Add', and the URL will be added to the list. New records will be added automatically.
Zotero is a references management tool that can be downloaded free of charge. You can use it to collect, organise, analyse and share research sources. Zotero recognises cited books and articles in the NARCIS Web pages that you visit. Zotero is comparable to EndNote. In NARCIS, you can archive the data on a publication by saving it while visiting the NARCIS publication page, but you can also select and archive publications that you have turned up after performing a search. You can also use Zotero to export bibliographical data, for example into RIS format for EndNote, BibteX or RDF. Zotero is a Firefox, Opera and Mosaic plug-in and can be downloaded from www.zotero.org.
NARCIS now has a huge number of records whose full-text versions are available to a restricted group, for example university staff and students. The page containing the bibliographical details of these records offers the 'OpenURL' option, giving many more users access to the full-text version of the article concerned. This involves using the institution's own OpenURL resolver, for example SFX. Users who cannot access this option in their own workplace can obtain information on the article's location through OCLC WorldCat.
Publications submitted to NARCIS with summaries and/or full-text versions are provided to Google Scholar. In addition, all data found in NARCIS can also be found in Google, and via WorldWideScience.org, the global science gateway maintained by the US Department of Energy to enable federated searching of national and international scientific databases and portals.
