Abstract: We have developed a data-warehouse system designed for research data centres, which is currently tested in the National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS) in Japan. The data warehouse integrates an online builder of multi-dimensional numerical databases a crawler engine, which classifies the papers retrieved from various online databases of electronic journals for relevance. The present data warehouse functions as an autonomous intelligent database of scientific abstracts; it is also a precursor for an autonomous self-updating database of numerical data, our ultimate goal.
Keywords: information retrieval; data warehouse; fusion plasma database; crawler; networked database builder; networking; electronic journals; e-journals; research data centres; Japan; numerical databases; online databases; intelligent database; scientific abstracts; data mining.
