At this site an online available database is maintained in which measurements of
hypernuclei are collected, scientifically evaluated, and regularly updated.
In the past, systematic uncertainties in important observables, the limited validity of
the interpretation of results, and bias effects on the selection of data have sometimes
been underestimated. This resulted in some inconsistent and unresolvable discrepant data
as well as some common incomplete data sets.
This database is for the benefit of the whole field of experimental and theoretical
nuclear strangeness physics. Its accuracy and usefulness depend in large part on the
interaction between its users and the maintainers. We appreciate comments, criticisms, and
suggestions for improvements of any kind.
