The ASEP database contains bibliographic records of the outcomes of scientific research in the institutes of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic since 1993. The obligation to store these records in the database ASEP results from the Academic Council directive № 4/2013.
Selected data from the database ASEP are annually exported to RIV.

RIV (Information Register of Research and Development Results) is a database of the Research, Development and Innovation Council which collects data for the purpose of evaluating the results of purposely and institutionally supported research and development in the Czech Republic. Transfer of the data to the RIV is one of the basic conditions for the provision of institutional resources for research and development.
RIV contains only certain types  of publications that have arisen in the context of addressing specific research plans and projects (grants). Information about projects is available in the database CEP – Central register of research and development projects supported from the state budget.
