Editorial comittee

The INPN Editorial Committee and its missions

The Ministry in charge of Ecology (MTE) has entrusted the MNHN with the organisation of the information system specific to the National Inventory of Natural Heritage (INPN) and its development in the form of a website, in addition to the scientific mission defined by law. The purpose of the latter is to make the information from the inventory available to as many people as possible, in particular the naturalist community, local authorities, public institutions and companies (research offices, space managers, etc.).

At the request of the Orientation committee of the INPN and the MTE, the MNHN is setting up an editorial committee (CE) which will be an important forum for discussion and consultation relating to the "dissemination" part of the INPN.

The EC is an advisory committee the main points of which must be cross-cutting issues with the objective of finding a broadcast compromise for the "general public" and "naturalists" with scientific robustness.

The main objective of this committee is to clarify and focus the concepts of strongness, editorial and navigational concepts of the INPN.

The satisfaction survey

Every year, the UMS 2006 Patrimoine Naturel carries out a satisfaction survey of the users of the INPN. The main objectives of this study are to identify the share of different audiences among the users of the UMS 2006 Natural Heritage, the use of the UMS 2006 Natural Heritage data, the number of contributions or requests made by Internet users and their satisfaction.

The analysis of the results of these annual surveys allows us to monitor the satisfaction and expectations of Internet users over time. The results allow and will allow to orient the future developments of the INPN, to inform the committee of the orientation and are partly the basis of discussion of the editorial committee.
