Introduction

In order to maintain and develop Japan's science and technology research at an international level, it is important to disseminate outstanding research and development results to the world instantaneously. To that end, it is important to digitize scholarly journals of academic societies and research papers currently published in paper form by user organizations and release them on the web.

In order to support the information transmission function of user organizations, the “Japan Science and Technology Information Aggregator, Electronic” (J-STAGE), developed by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), has set up the hardware and software necessary for electronic journal publishing within JST to provide services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. By taking advantage of this hardware and software, user organizations are able to digitize currently published journals of academic societies and research papers with ease and at low cost. Digitized documents can be accessed from anywhere in the world with this system. This project also links up with the National Institute of Informatics (NII), the National Diet Library (NDL), and Japan Link Center (JaLC).

Topics

J-STAGE congratulates Prof. OMURA for the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and Prof. KAJITA for the Nobel Prize in Physics.

Prof. Satoshi OMURA shares the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2015 for their discoveries concerning a novel therapy against infections caused by roundworm parasites.
Prof. Takaaki KAJITA shares the Nobel Prize in Physics 2015 for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass.
J-STAGE, which includes many articles by Prof. OMURA and by Prof. KAJITA is delighted by the news.

J-STAGE congratulates Prof. Akasaki, Prof. Amano, and Prof. Nakamura for Nobel Prize

Prof. Isamu AKASAKI, Prof. Hiroshi AMANO, and Prof. Shuji NAKAMURA share the Nobel Prize in Physics 2014 for the invention of efficient?blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving?white light sources.

J-STAGE Congratulates Prof. Yamanaka for Nobel Prize

Prof. Shinya YAMANAKA shared the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Dr. John Gurdon. "The discoveries of Gurdon and Yamanaka have shown that specialised cells can turn back the developmental clock under certain circumstances.“ (the Nobel Prize Assembly)
J-STAGE, which includes many articles by Prof. Yamanaka is delighted by the news.
