In the digital age any author can put information on the World Wide Web to
make it globally accessible. Scientists publish the results of their work
on the web using the server of a publisher, a central preprint server or
their own institutions or personal homepages. The web changes the handling
of information and the use of information management systems concerning
creation, distribution, retrieval and archiving of scientific results. The
major problem is not publishing, but retrieval of specific information
from amongst the huge amount of information on the web.

Good known and widely used search engines like Google etc. are mostly
global and not very specialized on a specific field. As a result, many
"hits" are not relevant and the users are drowned in a flood of irrelevant
answers. The field specific information a researcher looks for represents
only a tiny fraction of the information available on the web.

A solution to this problem are specialized search engines and information
systems which only search in specific fields and serves only professional

One examples for such a system is PhysNet, the physics department and
document network ( PhysNet is a so called
distributed information service and one of the largest and completest
portals to the learned field of physics. We report on the present status
of PhysNet, our experience in operating it, and the development of its

In this connection we will also report on the project SINN - Searchengine
Network in the International Natural Science Network
( The aim of this project is to
enhance PhysNet to a fast and stable service by setting up a network of
independent but cooperating Harvest-brokers and Harvest-gatherers as a
searchengine system and building an active network of PhysNet-mirrors.
