e-Publishing at ICTP
the Science Dissemination Unit collaborates with several ICTP offices to address one of the main issues of great concern in the scientific community, namely, the dissemination of scientific data and information. This is necessary for the advancement of research and education in order to provide contents that contribute to the benefit and well-being of society and to promote international scientific and technological activities.
