International Scientific Registry «Socrates–Notion» is a specialized ordered registry of authors of scientific reports (scientists) and their publications. It is an open database of personal and creative scientific data.
The Registry performs a function of the integrated international resource aimed at collection and distribution of information concerning scientists and their creativity, officially published in printed and electronic media (publications).
The Registry is intended for accumulation or ordering of data on the basis of given criteria, providing persons concerned with access to information, identification of persons presented in the Registry and creation of conditions for development of international scientific communications.
The specific function of the Registry is the informational separation and status underlining of every scientist and his/her creativity in order to present such scientist's qualification as well as his/her personal contribution into the development of science, protect the copyright and facilitate access of persons concerned to the corresponding information.
The Registry is the open source of information. Every person concerned is provided with access to it.
The Registry does assume collection of such kind of information like commercial, personal or family secrets of any person or any other closed (confidential) information that cannot be publicized.
The person included into the Registry must confirm main scientific information presented in the Registry through submission of electronic copies of corresponding documents or other official carriers of information.
Any information, able to illegally cause any kinds of damage to persons included into the Registry or third parties, can not be presented in the Registry.
Any information violating the copyright or neighboring rights of people included into the Registry or third parties, as well as unreliable and unethical information cannot be presented in the Registry. Borrowing information from the Registry with the purpose of further use with violation of the copyright or other rights of people included into the Registry or the third parties is also prohibited.
Information is uploaded to the Registry directly by researchers (scientists) on the voluntary basis after acquisition of the Registry figurant status. Information may also be uploaded by their legal representatives.
Contents and fullness of data to be published in the Registry is determined by the correspondent figurant of the Registry independently (except for the obligatory data).
International Academy of Science and Higher Education (IASHE; London, United Kingdom), as the initiator of foundation and the holder of the Registry, is not responsible for: a) safety and inviolability of personal data of the Registry figurants being freely accessible by persons concerned (except for the confidential contacts and other data presented to the IASHE with no right of publication); b) possibility of submission (by the Registry figurants) of deliberately false information or data able to cause any kinds of damage to third parties - upon condition of the proper and possible level of diligence (from the side of the IASHE) and attention in the process of making a decision concerning the acceptance of information and publication of it in the Registry; c) possibility of illegal use of the open information published in the Registry by the third parties.
Any claims or demands to the IASHE as the Registry holder are settled through direct appeal of the person concerned and organization of the corresponding consultations.
Any disputes between the IASHE, Registry figurants and the third parties in relation to contents and the use of information presented in the Registry are settled in accordance with the legislation of the United Kingdom.
Absence of bureaucratic obstacles and discrimination on formal signs
Any person regardless of his or her personal qualities, social, professional, biological or property status, systematically engaged in scientific studies and having not less than three official author's scientific publications in editions with international ISBN or ISSN codes by the moment of registration in the Socrates–Notion can become the figurant of the Registry.
Within the framework of the project called the International Scientific Registry Socrates–Notion the scientist is determined as the person engaged in progressive intellectual creativity regardless of acknowledgment of his or her scientific qualification or achievements at the formal level.
Scientific publications are original studies implemented using the scientific methodology and aimed at innovative authorial contribution of the corresponding scientist into the development of science and achievement of true knowledge.
