Abstract

This paper describes the availability of databases held on DIALOG, ESA‐IRS and DATA‐STAR. In Section 2 particular attention will be paid to database overlap between hosts. Section 3 will consider the differences between prices and will analyse the relation between prices and database contents. Section 4 analyses the fixed costs of local investments and the variable added costs of online transmission.
