About us

Wissenschaftliche Informationsvermittlung/Scientific Information Services

We offer and provide the following services to staff and guests of the Max Planck Society (MPG), especially in the Bio-Medical Section:

  • Bibliometric Analyses for the visit of the Scientific Advisory Board and other requests. We identify the publications of authors, research groups and institutions and determine their numbers, citations and ranking.
  • Support in the use of reference management systems for storing, organizing and sharing reference collections, e.g. EndNote, Mendeley, Papers.
  • Assistance in the utilization of literature, patent and other databases.
  • Help with the search of supplementary information about topics beyond the usual focus.
  • Training and workshops via online-communication programs: We teach an efficient way of searching in databases and the competent use of reference management systems.
  • PDFs containing search tips based on frequently asked questions.
  • Strategies for searching MPG publications of each individual institute of the MPG.
  • Useful software for BioTools and databases provided by members of the Max Planck Society - free access!
