BfS "DORIS" Online Library
The Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) has been making its scientific publications accessible electronically for several years now. The BfS "Digital Online Repository and Information System" (short: DORIS) is the on-line platform for central storage, long-term archiving and publication of the scientific reports of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection.
Searching electronic BfS publications in DORIS
Currently there are two superordinate sections in DORIS with a total of ten thematic collections.
The first section contains the "central topics" of the BfS:
It also includes the two completed collections "Nuclear Waste Disposal" and "Nuclear Technology", which contain archived reports that BfS published as part of its responsibility for these topics until 2016 and 2017, respectively. In the collection "BfE-Publikationen" the current reports of the Federal Office for the Safety of Nuclear Waste Management (BfE) are published for a transitional period.
The second section contains collections that meet certain formal criteria:
- Reports and studies (publications with general topics or which can not be assigned to a single topic)
- Departmental research (final reports from research projects of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety)
- Annual Report on Environmental Radioactivity and Radiation Exposure (results of monitoring environmental radioactivity and data on natural and civilizational radiation exposure in Germany)
- Annual reports (activity reports) of the BfS
The database contained in DORIS can be sorted according to various aspects, e.g. by publication date, author or title. The use of keywords for either a "global search" (in the entire database) or restricted to individual subject areas is also possible.
URN for persistent identification of digital publications
To clearly mark the electronic BfS publications and to guarantee permanent citability, a URN (abbreviation of "Uniform Resource Name") is issued for each document published in DORIS. URNs can be compared with the ISBN number e.g. of books and serve to permanently and clearly identify digital publications.
It is therefore preferable to use URNs to link documents in websites, since such URN-based links never become inactive and do not require updating.
