CERN Document Server: Document Management System for Grey Literature in Networked Environment

Martin Vesely & Tibor Šimko
Co-authored together with Baron T., Le Meur J., & Simko T. / In this paper we present a technology for networked information services, developed at the CERN Document Server (CDS) research group, called the CERN Document Server Software (CDSware). Standardization of networked information services in the field of grey literature has recently become a subject of an intensive research in the digital library community. The current state-ofthe-art in this area effectively allows to provide various...

How do High-Energy Physics scholars discover scientific information?

Anne Gentil-Beccot
Grey literature has always been the main conduit of scholarly communication for High-Energy Physics (HEP) researchers. An efficient way of searching and accessing this information is a central part of their research workflow. In 2007, a survey was conducted to understand which information resources HEP scholars use to find the information they need. The results of this survey are presented. Over 2000 answers, representing about one-tenth of the active HEP community, were collected and show...

Invenio: A Modern Digital Library System for Grey Literature

Jérôme Caffaro & Samuele Kaplun
Grey literature has historically played a key role for researchers in the field of High-Energy Physics (HEP). Consequently CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) as the world's largest particle physics laboratory has always been facing the challenge of distributing and archiving grey material. Invenio, an open-source repository software, has been developed as part of CERN's institutional repository strategy to answer these needs. In this document we describe how the particular context of grey literature within...


INSPIRE is a trusted community hub that helps researchers to share and find accurate scholarly information in high energy physics.

50 Years of Experience in Making Grey Literature Available: Matching the Expectations of the Particle Physics Community

Carmen O’Dell & Jens Vigen
Co-authored together with Dallman D., Vesely M., and Vigen J. / The CERN Scientific Information Service has been active in the field of digital library research and in providing scientific information services to the high-energy physics community for almost five decades now. Most recently the research focus has been on interoperability issues in document storage and retrieval systems, metadata added-value services, digital library automation and networked information services. The achievements of this research and the...
