Researchers' Bibliography is an arranged list of researchers' works. The basic guidance for sorting bibliographic items is valid typology of documents/works.

In cooperation with the Institute of Biomedical Informatics, Medical Faculty, University of Ljubljana, we keep the bibliography of publications of all the researchers employed in the National Institute of Biology and the Department of Biology, Biotechnical Faculty, University of Ljubljana, in databases Biomedicina slovenica and SICRIS/COBISS.

In the database of Researchers' Bibliographies the evaluation of scientific efficiency of individual researchers and research teams is entered.

Biomedicina Slovenica

Biomedicina Slovenica (BS) is the computerised Slovenian national bibliography for the field of biomedical sciences. For over twenty years it has been built by the Institute of Biomedical Informatics of the Faculty of Medicine. BS covers the work published in Slovenia and the work of Slovenian authors published abroad which meet the quality standards and bibliographic criteria. BS is divided into two segments: in the older segment (1976-1985) there are 20,530 bibliographic records, while the current segment (1986 to present) is continuously being updated. Both segments are available at the WWW

 

COBISS

In the COBISS.SI system, a uniform methodology is used for the preparation of bibliographies of Slovenian researchers, registered with the Slovenian Research Agency. This ensures rational bibliographic processing, more accurate registration, better transparency of research activity results, and the possibility to apply uniform criteria for research activity evaluation standards.

Here you can prepare a bibliography display of an individual researcher (in English language too) for selected years and in chosen format.
