All together, with their summaries, in full text, well ordenered by categories, subjects, taxonomies, keywords… so you have enough tools to achieve all the information that content * and also it is in Internet.

There are possible find out the relevance of an article, of the authors or their organizations. Find out the related works to one paper, the related bibliography, their impact in others works, etc…

More or less it is an Academic Repository. And the organizations like Universities, Goverments, Companies or simply students, use this “databases” and their tools to provide their research and their reports with a solid base, the first point when you are doing a research.
