Next we will show some of the advantages that the ScienSe system has.
ScienSe is under the General Public License (GPL), it allows you or somebody else to take, review, improve or adapt the source code of the software without any special proceeding, whenever it does not fail to fulfill the GPL to that ScienSe is subject.
Most of the available systems require the payment of expensive memberships so as to access them, this originates that those programs are only within reach of who wants and can pay by them. On ScienSe, we thought that the scientific information must be within reach of who requires it at any time, by this reason, we put this software to the disposition of everybody that requires without waiting for it any kind of remuneration.
When designing ScienSe, we did it thinking about the interoperability and by this reason we based it on standards, this allows the stored information be accessible from any other program that handles the standards, with this, the user is not tied to the system once it has initiated its use, as happens with other proprietary systems; with ScienSe, if at any moment you decide to change yourself of software, you can do it without losing the valuable information that handles until that moment. We made our better effort so as to get ScienSe fulfills at least the most popular standards on every level of the system.
Unlike other existing systems, ScienSe is more than a single information manager, since it has an integrated indexer. This means that it is not required that the data of the articles to be provided manually, ScienSe can periodically consults the sites that are indicated to it in order to obtain from them the works that have been published recently, get the outstanding data from them, organize these information and store them in a structure that makes its consultation easier.
Almost all the systems of this kind in the market, taking advantage of the great necessity that the users has for the information they handle, and the shortage of such, they occur the luxury to restrict, as most as they can, the access to their systems anyway.
The development of the system has been carried out following the best techniques in order to make a safe programming in all the levels. In addition its architecture based on layers makes the security easier to guarantee in each level.
Truthful and flexible
Due to the characteristics of ScienSe, the obtained data could be kept under two different modalities, depending this, of the process that is followed for it. The process to add new information to the database can be one of the following:
Due to the ScienSe's architecture each one of the different layers has been implemented as efficient as possible, using the best algorithms in the implementation.
The ScienSe's developers team knows that the ease use is an important factor for the success of any software. Is for that reason that has been given special attention to the final-user interface. For it, we have become attached, during the design, to the recommendations done by the creators of the most successful user interfaces of the market, and to the studies of usability.
