The goal of the MeDoc project is to improve information exchange among scientists and the supply of the researchers with relevant information. Hand in hand with the globalization of science, this is being demanded strongly by scientists of all subjects.

To achieve this aim, the Medoc Project comprises three areas of work:

These goals shall be achieved through building the so-called Medoc Service, a distributed information service for Computer Science literature. The literature shall be available as full text, the structure of the literature shall be maintained, it should be searchable and archived on a long-term basis, and annotations and scientific reviewing shall be possible.
