English abstract

The EC-funded FIGARO project is concerned with free access to electronic scientific information in three major respects: it tackles major issues of publication economy by introducing a novel federate business model (this aspect has already been presented by Bas Savenije in Leuven recently), it will implement the OAI-protocol (which of course is useful, but not sufficiently original to merit a separate presentation in this conference), and it is strongly concerned with technical aspects of free access to electronic information objects. While briefly mentioning the two others I will concentrate on this last aspect in my presentation and thus talk about issues such as open, vendor independent document models, identifiers and open linking/pointing techniques as prerequisites for electronic information being freely accessible. The textual version of this presentation at the Conference "Open Access to Scientific and Technical Information: State of the Art and Future Trends" (Paris, 23-24 January 2003) was published in "Information Services and Use" vol. 23 (2003), issue 2-3, p. 175-177.
