About J-GLOBAL

Search for knowledge in different fields and link to new concepts and seeds

J-GLOBAL is a service based on the concept of Linking, Expanding, and Sparking, linking science and technology information which hitherto stood alone to support the generation of ideas.
By linking the information entered, we provide opportunities to make unexpected discoveries and obtain knowledge from dissimilar fields from high-quality science and technology information within and outside JST.
We hope you’ll use it to find ideas and create opportunities in the initial stages and planning of academic-industrial cooperation or research and development.

linking science and technology information

J-GLOBAL concept

Linking

J-GLOBAL links information that represents the key to research and development. For example, linking articles and patents with people (authors and inventors) enables the extraction of a sequence of information.
It’s useful for making new discoveries and uncovering new information.

Expanding

The system enables searches of similar kinds of content through linkage with external sites.
It helps you to obtain knowledge from dissimilar fields and discover concepts that cross the boundaries of specialisms.

Sparking

Through repeated linkage and expansioniteration, J-GLOBAL provides unexpected hints for problem-solving and the spark of new ideas.
