The Specialised Information Service Pharmacy (SIS) is a project of the University Library Braunschweig.
The German Research Foundation (DFG) has been funding the project since 01.01.2015 (within the Specialised Information Services funding programme). Currently, the project is in its third funding phase. The DFG established a new funding programme for Specialised Information Services to strengthen and improve the information infrastructure for academic research. The SIS Pharmacy is a cooperation project between the University Library Braunschweig and the Institute for Information Systems at TU Braunschweig.

Project aims:

  • Improvement of literature supply
  • Optimisation of literature search and full text access
  • Development of innovative search tools
  • Advancement of information infrastructure

Since October 2016 the freely accessible pharmacy-specific search platform PubPharm (www.pubpharm.de) is available online as central service of the SIS Pharmacy. Together with the Institute for Information Systems, the University Library is developing tailored and specific services, which are targeted towards fulfilling the requirements and research interests of the pharmaceutical academic research community. If a developed prototype proves to be useful for the community, it will be integrated into PubPharm. Feedback by researchers assures that informatics research and development by SIS Pharmacy do not miss requirements. For achieving this, the needs for each pharmaceutical field are being determined through exchanges with focus groups. Further details about the project can be found here.
