Information Analysis


An analysis is provided of the issues associated with the Internet presence of the Academies of Sciences (AS) of the countries of the Americas (American Continents Countries). The legal statuses of the ASs are indicated, as well as their interactions with government bodies, corporations, national and international scientific organizations, individual researchers, etc. A detailed analysis is conducted of the information posted on the AS websites, their interface features, language choices, available services, and main webometric indicators. Conclusions are drawn about the role of the AS websites in ensuring the availability and dissemination of science and technical information, about their significance in the creation of the national and international scientific information space, and about the potential usefulness of the AS websites for Russian researchers.
