Scientific documentation Programme
The scientific documentation program is promoted by the General Directorate of Research (DGR), of the Ministry of Economy and Knowledge (DEC) and the Agency for Administration of University and Research Grants (AGAUR).
The purpose of this program is to contribute to the coordination of the different efforts made by different administrative bodies and institutions within the Catalan science and technology system.
Furthermore, it can contribute to coordinating the different efforts being made in this area and, in general, improve the science and technology system in Catalonia as a whole in accordance with the directives of the 2005-2008 Plan for Research and Innovation in Catalonia. At the service of the universities, administration and other institutions of the country, the scientific documentation program can systemise the type of bibliometric analyses, among others, and thus provide critical information for making decisions regarding scientific policy.
