A review of international scientific publications was carried out. The problem of open use the verified, scientific, and succinctly presented content is revealed. It is emphasized the need for technical and technological implementation of the following capabilities: content uploading, editing, and enhancing support; coordinated work of the international scientific authors’ team; open access anytime and anywhere for many users; search functions by various parameters on the site, etc.
