CISTI Strategic Plan 2005-2010

Strategic Plan 2005-10

Summary version


Full version


The transformation from print to digital has created enormous change in the world of scientific, technical and medical (STM) information. CISTI is a world leader in using new methods to aggregate, analyse, and deliver that information. The CISTI Strategic Plan 2005-2010 shows how CISTI will support research and innovation through high-value STM information and publishing services. CISTI is establishing the collaborative agreements, partnerships, systems and practices required to carry out all stages of providing STM information online. CISTI's paper-based collection, the foundation of its services since 1924, will remain a significant national asset.

CISTI will improve the flow of scientific information in three ways:

  • An integrated "infostructure": electronic access to scientific information, using intelligent search and analysis tools
  • Scientific publishing infrastructure, using online peer review, editing and publishing tools that will shorten the time between discovery and publication without sacrificing quality
  • Services to support commercialization, such as Competitive Technical Intelligence and Patent information analysis - what we call "actionable" information

For further information, both a summary version and the entire Strategic Plan 2005-2010 are available through the links below. You may also request print copies (in English or French) through the CISTI Help Desk at 1-800-668-1222.
