Abstract: The need of public access databases in modern biomedical research and to other disciplines is well-attested, provided that they are easily accessible, user-friendly, compiled with quality critaeria ensuring and bolstering their use and the data provided are dependable, straightforward in meaning and presented in usable form (effect-oriented data bases). The organization, maintenance and presentation of such databases are expensive and laborious tasks, thus encompassing significant funding. Their promotion and use, though, should follow some standards and rules and be coupled with compatible research project structure, reviewing and granting, a combination which will allow fruitful use of databases’ resources and help avoid previous misconceptions in the management and allocation of the related research resources. The objective is to avoid the pitfalls of the past and to further the trustworthiness of the data provided early on the creation of a database which by definition is not only limited but also of poorer quality and limited uniformity, and structure research projects accordingly so as to allow limited but reliable use of such resources as early as possible with little risk for the user.
