The Society intends to act as an international forum of scientific exchange for all persons interested in pertinent issues on sturgeons while at the same time seeking opportunities for close co-operation at an international level.
Members have the opportunity to provide their CV and professional profile on the internal member webpage for internal use among the membership, allowing the search of specific expertise on a wide range of sturgeon related issues.
Issues of high actuality can be put forward to WSCS in search of specific topic related information.
A global data bank on sturgeon literature (accessible to members only, use your Member Login Data to enter the Bibliography), covering the content of peer review scientific journals as well as the grey literature (e.g. project reports, governmental agencies, student thesis, NGOs).– Apart from the full reference (number of entries = 6 405) the data bank contains a species index, a subject index, and a geographic index. It is intended to gradually upgrade the bibliography by adding the abstracts of the referenced publications. This will be fully searchable by keywords..
The WSCS offers to members in good standing the possibility of accessing and downloading the papers published on the JAI since 1985, through a dedicated link that can be found in “documents” in the reserved area.
