TARGINO, Maria das Graças. The obvious on scientific information: access and use. Transinformação [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.2, pp.97-105. ISSN 0103-3786.

This work approaches the access and use of scientific information, based on its conception and role aimed at the scientific and technological advances of the countries. In contemporary society, communication electronic nets (with emphasis on the Internet) speed up the informational flow, but, at the same time, require greater rigor in order to select consistent scientific information. Among the information access alternatives, besides scientific journals (printed or electronic), there is the free information access movement, which resorts to free access databases and/or free code software. There are other options, such as (1) the Creative Commons, a non-profit project, that makes flexible licenses available to intellectual productions, including scientific texts; and (2) the open source journalism (OSJ), which encourages an effective community participation in the news production. In any case, there are no single solutions for multiple societies - which means to say that every technological innovation has its own space and its own public, in such a way that the access and use of scientific information occur, also, in many differently faceted forms (and therefore, the world moves on without risks of becoming a global village)

Palavras-chave : Scientific information; Internet; free access; Creative Commons; Open Source Journalism.
