For the last few decades, data Integration from heterogeneous data sources has been an area of active research in the Database field. In this paper, we have tried to survey five scientific data integration systems. The purpose of the paper is not to provide an in depth study of the different works conducted on scientific data integration but to give a brief overview of some of the research being conducted to the reader. Readers seeking more detailed information on the topic may refer to the references mentioned at the end of this paper.
