EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and Institut de l’Information Scientifique et Technique of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (INIST-CNRS) have signed an agreement making two INIST-CNRS databases available on EBSCOhost®. PASCAL is a multilingual, multidisciplinary database covering science, technology and medicine. FRANCIS is a multidisciplinary database providing humanities and social sciences coverage.
The agreement provides for extensive backfile coverage for both PASCAL and FRANCIS. PASCAL content is available back to 1984 and FRANCIS content is available back to 1972. EBSCO will be the first provider to offer FRANCIS archives from 1972 to 1984—previously FRANCIS was only available from 1984 to the present.
