Design and Development

These documents are organized in a web-accessible framework using the Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP platform with a query-based retrieval methodology based on the meta data fields. The search features include:

  • Basic and advanced search with facilities such as both free-text and index terms (analytical tables and graphs) search;
  • Other search features include Boolean search (AND; OR; NOT) for narrowing or expanding searches;
  • Capability to search based on project title, PI name, Year, Subject, State, Funding Agency, State, Name of institute, and related keywords such as agency-scheme acronyms, subjects, year etc.
  • User aids such as organization index, state index; on-line search help, etc., and
  • Scope for future updates of NSTMIS publications

Other features of the database include provision to highlight search terms in the display record and Search button to begin search, and a Reset button to clear the search page. Queries conducted in the search button may be case insensitive, i.e., a word entered in lower case will match words entered in upper case, lower case, or mixed case. There is also a provision to take printout/email the search results.

The database also contains Directories containing year-wise Extramural Research and Development Projects [in terms of title, address of principal investigator, duration, name of funding agency/scheme and funds approved] accessible in Excel Format.
