Astrophysics Data System (usually referred to as ADS), developed by
the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), is an
online database of over eight million astronomy and physics papers
from both peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed sources. Abstracts
are available free online for almost all articles, and full scanned
articles are available in Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) and
Portable Document Format (PDF) for older articles. New articles
have links to electronic versions hosted at the journal's webpage,
but these are typically available only by subscription (which most
astronomy research facilities have). It is managed by the
Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. ADS is a powerful
research tool and has had a significant impact on the efficiency of
astronomical research since it was launched in 1992. Literature
searches that previously would have taken days or weeks can now be
carried out in seconds via the ADS search engine, custom-built for
astronomical needs. Studies have found that the benefit to
astronomy of the ADS is equivalent to several hundred million US
dollars annually, and the system is estimated to have tripled the
readership of astronomical journals. Use of ADS is almost universal
among astronomers worldwide, and therefore ADS usage statistics can
be used to analyze global trends in astronomical research. These
studies have revealed that the amount of research an astronomer
carries out is related to the per capita gross domestic product
(GDP) of the country in which he/she is based, and...
