2. Article

J-GLOBAL provides bibliographical information for article(papers, magazine articles, and so on) databases concerning science and technology prepared by JST. Please note that we do not provide the original text on the web due to copyright (however, in some cases the original text is available on external linked sites).

Amending, deleting and registering new content

In principle we don’t accept requests to delete article information with correct content, but if an article is withdrawn or there’s some other particular reason, please send mail using Comments and enquiries after checking with the copyright holder (association, publisher etc.).
In addition, the name of the institution, author and so on are given in the format of the original text at the time of publication. We don’t accept revisions of the existing notation. In addition, regarding old article information (particularly documents issued around 1975 to 1980), the online environment when they were created was severely restricted, and there’s a lot of hiragana notation instead of kanji in the outlines and author names.
Furthermore, when publishing new article in the database from the science and technology documents collected by JST, certain standards must be met, so we don’t publish article information according to the wishes of researchers themselves. If you have any other requests, please contact us using Comments and enquiries.

In addition to the bibliography information, a database of summaries and index information is provided in JDream(a paid service).

3. Patent

7. Chemical Substance

This contains chemicals registered in the Japan Chemical Substance Dictionary created by JST. Organic compounds with fixed structure and their compounds qualify for inclusion, and it contains their names in Japanese and English, legal number, CAS registration number, structural information and so on. The start of the Nikkaji registry was in 1986.The registry system of Nikkaji was established by improving the "Study on the utilization upgrading of compound information based on shared network", which was the Special Coordination Funds for Promoting Science and Technology project of the Science and Technology Agency conducted between FY1981 and FY1986.
The data sources are as follows.

(1) Initial data

  • Chemical compound cards collected by the JICST (presently JST) Information Department as the auxiliary data for article index.
  • Compounds registered in the specialized databases of the organizations participating in the Special Coordination Funds for Promoting Science and Technology project of the Science and Technology Agency (presently the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology).
  • Substances registered in the "Japanese Existing and New Chemical Substances List" stipulated in the "Law Concerning the Examination and Regulation of Manufacture, etc. of Chemical Substances," and the compounds notified thereafter as new compounds.
  • Compounds designated in the "Industrial Safety and Health Law" and notified in the official gazettes.
  • Compounds registered in RTECS (Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances) published by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare of the U.S.
  • Textbooks and handbooks in the fields of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, reagents, dyes and pigments, food additives, and natural products.

(2) Updated data

At present, the data registry of Nikkaji is produced simultaneously with the indexing of thematic substances in the article*, and the data are replaced everyday (on an as-needed basis).
When a new substance is indexed, this substance is newly registered in Nikkaji. When a conventionally registered substance is indexed with a new name, the new name is added to Nikkaji.
And, the law regulation numbers that have been notified in the official gazettes are recorded on an as-needed basis.

* The " article " means the article included in JSTPlus file (science and technology article file) and JMEDPlus file (Japan medical article file).
We don’t regularly register, delete or modify the chemical substances based on user opinions, but if you have any advice and so on, please contact us using .

8. Gene

About related and inferred information

J-GLOBAL has a function for displaying related information and inferred information through the Related Search, and Mechanical Identification Processing Results using our proprietary relevancy calculation logic. Since the inference is by computer, irrelevant information may be suggested depending on the content of the original information and the results of the relevancy calculation.
However, J-GLOBAL was developed as a concept support tool for making new discoveries and obtaining insights through the process of following (loosely) related information, and we believe that the related/inferred information function is a very important part of J-GLOBAL.
Going forward, we intend to improve the accuracy of the relevancy calculation and inference functions, and we ask for your understanding in this matter.
