Summary

With the goal of countering prevailing neglect in the field of research on alternatives to animal experiments and of promoting the development of alternatives by pursuing projects of its own, the German Animal Welfare Association has installed a reviewed-literature PC-based databank for alternatives to animal experiments at the Academy for the Protection of Animal s (Akademie fur Tierschutz). The records in the databank are based on scientific papers; presently 10000 entries are stored according to a given scheme. With the help of defined key words, each publication is characterized according to certain aspects, so that it can be called up together with other similar publications in the process of a literature search. Information from the databank is available to anyone: scientists, public authorities, and animal rightists. Literature searches are performed on any given theme without a fee, and requests are processed without delay. University libraries and other institutions may obtain the entire databank along with regular updates.
