Search Using OECD Database

"New" OECD Database Launched

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) announced that it has published a database of research projects related to the safety of manufactured nanomaterials. This database was originally created by and used to reside at the website of the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and covered active government-funded Nano-EHS research projects.

Early on, ICON had a grand vision of creating a central resource for sifting through the growing information about nano-EHS. ICON's first step in that direction was to allow someone visiting our bibliographic database of nano-EHS papers to search the NIOSH Nanoparticle Information Library (NIL) and the PEN research database from our site. While this worked for awhile, systems and ideas have evolved and created changes. The OECD database now points to ICON but the ICON database doesn't point to it yet. But stay tuned for future developments. ICON is working to change our Advanced Search function to allow searching directly within the OECD database from the ICON website.

For more information and thoughts on these databases, see the ICON Blog.
