REVOLUTIONARY STEPS IN MOLDOVA IN THE FIELD OF ETD
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Toward the end of 2002, the Academy of Sciences of Moldova (ASM) made its first steps in the field of Electronic Theses & Dissertations. A team working on the development of a web-based information portal for ASM publications proposed to use their existing infrastructure to create an experimental database of theses and dissertations. The initial report of the project has already been published . Moldavian theses and dissertations represent some of the least accessible scientific publications available, yet are considered the quintessence of long-term work of many of the most active scientists in several subject areas within the country. They also can be used to establish priority in many areas of science. The current ETD project has the support of the High Attestation Committee of Moldova. During this year (2003), provided the project obtains the necessary financial support, all steps and materials in the defense of Ph.D.s and Doctor habilitat will be included in the Mediateca Intended for Researchers database (MIR - www.mir.acad.md). The development and introduction of the system assumes several stages of fulfillment of work. In the first stage, a prototype database containing only materials obtained in Ph.D. programs and summaries of the Doctor habilitats will be deployed. The second stage will focus on the creation of data acquisitions and access control mechanisms to all steps and the full texts of the materials in defense of Ph.D. and Doctor habilitat. The project developers intend to follow the suggested guidelines based on OAI, OAF and best practices of other successful ETD implementations to establish the most advanced areas of a science in any scientific - educational, research center.
