FRANCIS and PASCAL

The FRANCIS and PASCAL databases are now available via this link on the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z:

http://pascal-francis.inist.fr/home/

The site Free Access to Pascal and Francis is an archive of the PASCAL and FRANCIS bibliographic databases in exact, human and social sciences, produced by the Inist-CNRS since 1972 and hitherto accessible with a subscription.

Three search modes are featured: simple, advanced, expert. You can also browse the content of PASCAL and FRANCIS by keywords (vocabulary) or by thematics (classification).

“The opening of the FRANCIS and PASCAL bibliographic data on this website fits into the recommendations expressed by the Scientific Information Department of the CNRS, which advocate the dissemination and opening in free access of the Pascal and Francis archive.”

“In its 1 (initial) Version the site offers a free access to more than 14 million bibliographic references of articles, conference papers and conference proceedings produced by the Inist-CNRS from 1984 to 2015 for PASCAL (12 millions) and from 1972 to 2015 for FRANCIS (2 millions). It will become progressively enriched with other document types and with records of partners having cooperated to PASCAL and FRANCIS supply in the past.”
