HOW TO USE THE WESTERN SOLOMONS RESEARCH DATABASE

Welcome to the Western Solomons Research Database!

This on-line source of information on research carried out in western Solomons (defined as Western and Choiseul provinces) has been established by the Bergen Pacific Studies Research Group in Norway (www.pacific.uib.no) in response to information needs expressed in 2007 by leaders of Western Province, Solomon Islands. Launched on the WWW on 23 September 2008 the database is under continuous development.

A search method for the entire Database is yet to be developed. Meanwhile, there are two ways to access research information: 1) by clicking on “Research themes” you will find research organized by topics that reflect Solomon Islander interest; or 2) by clicking on “People and Their Research” which leads to individual researchers and their research reports, as well as information about their research fields and geographical area(s) of work. Clicking a name gives access to that person’s research profile and list of publications (or a clickable CV) and, in many cases, PDF files of research results that can be downloaded for your private use.

A search method for the entire Database will be developed. Meanwhile, you can simply click “People and Their Research” and examine the steadily increasing alphabetical list of participants in the database, including information about their research fields and geographical area(s) of work. Clicking a name gives access to that person’s research profile and list of publications (or a clickable CV), and, in many cases, PDF files of research results that can be downloaded for your private use.

With this, we wish you all welcome and say leana hola / leana via!
