The Base of Knowledge of the Warsaw University of Technology contains details of scientific articles, implementation reports and all the research carried out at the Warsaw University of Technology. It gives access to information on publicly funded research reports, defended doctoral dissertations, didactic activity and diploma theses completed on both, first and second degree studies.Additionally, the system stores data on the scientific achievements of employees and students, collected in accordance with the requirements for the assessment of employees and education institutions.The digital copies of the documents, including monographs, articles, book chapters and reports, are stored in ‘the PW Repository’. Furthermore, as an important part of the system, the repository contains the documents stating the basis for awarding degrees and scientific titles. Access to these files may be limited, as it’s based on the agreements between authors of the work and institutions with the rights of ownership (these may include publishers or research funding institutions).
The Base of Knowledge was developed for the purpose of providing easy access to information about all the research conducted at the University, as well as on the specialization of research units and administrative workers. The system acting as a communication platform between the Warsaw University of Technology and research financing institutions is successively made available from 2013. All the University institutions, conducting scientific research and engaging in teaching activities are responsible for the regularity and completeness of data collected by the system.
The concept and technical design of the WUT Knowledge Base was developed at the WUT Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology, as part of the PASSIM project (completed as part of the SYNAT research task financed by the National Center for Research and Development). The implementation of the project, including the preparation of the legal basis for implementation, conducting training and the verification of previously existing data was coordinated by WUT Main Library (task co-financed by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education).
