English abstract

The scientific publication process has been so far only marginally affected by the possibilities of the Internet. The reason is a lack of sound business models and pilots to demonstrate the ultimate benefits of free scientific publication. A team of universities, Internet publishers and applied research institutes proposes to demonstrate these benefits and re-engineer parts of the scientific publication process by: (a) building a fully functioning on-line service, where scientific work, including results of EU projects, would be available for free (with content from architecture, engineering and construction - AEC) and where a virtual on-line community of authors and readers would meet. To support a business model where minimal costs are associated into the process it will enhance the technologies for the (b) self organising maintenance and (c) intelligent user interfaces and finally (d) define business models where scientific work would be wrapped by commercial sites that would make the content more appealing to the industrial audience.
