The Svalbard Science Forum is proud to announce that we now have 2000
projects registered in the RiS-database.
About the RiS database:
The database is a tool to provide information about ongoing and planned
scientific research in Svalbard, and is intended to facilitate coordination
and cooperation of research and field activities. It is fully electronic and
replaces the annual project catalogue 'Research in Svalbard RiS'. All
information from this catalogue has been implemented in the new database and
thus is searchable also in the future. Each registered project has a unique
ID, the RiS-ID. You will need this RiS-ID, when applying for permission at
the Governor of Svalbard (www.svalbardscienceforum.no/pages/news255.htm)
and when booking facilities in Ny-Ålesund (http://research.kingsbay.no/).
In addition to the project registration modul there is also a metadatabase
for datasets. Please add information about datasets collected in Svalbard to
this modul. The RiS database only collects metadata about datasets and not
the datasets itself. However, you can add a link to the dataset during the
registion in order to make your dataset available to others. For a short "how-to"
