Central specialised information centres

The central specialised research centres (CSICs) were established for all scientific disciplines on the basis of a 2003 public tender. The CSICs process, store and communicate specialised information to all users in their respective scientific fields. They also monitor and supervise the compliance bibliographic units classification with the valid typology of documents/works for bibliography handling in the COBISS system (Tipologija-21.11.2002.pdf - format Acrobat, 96KB).

The details, conditions and procedures for selecting tenders for the co-financing of CSICs, the assessment procedure, the supervision of CSIC work, and the details on reporting CSIC results, are set out in the Rules on Co-Financing Central Specialised Information Centres.
