The EISZ national programme uses a country-wide licence for providing access to crucial electronic databases to higher education institutions and researchers. EISZ has managed to increase the international competitiveness of the Hungarian colleges, universities and non-profit research institutes by securing increased access to information. EISZ has been established for the very purpose of ensuring the broadest possible access to value-added international scientific information. The EISZ national programme has become an indispensable part of the work of researchers in Hungary. EISZ provides access to scholarly databases all around Hungary and as such has become an organic component of the Hungarian research infrastructure. It includes bibliographic information and full text versions of current periodicals, specialized articles and scientific publications as well as databases that are essential for research.
