AGRIS : BACKGROUND

AGRIS (International Information System for the Agricultural Science and Technology) is a free of charge service that provides access and visibility to research information resources in agricultural and related sectors.

Since 1975, AGRIS has been maintained by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO of the UN), thus helping enhance visibility of agricultural publications produced worldwide by governmental agencies, universities and research centres.

  • AGRIS is used by students, researchers, lecturers, librarians and other information  professionals, publishers and professional associations and government officials.
  • AGRIS records are (i) fully indexed by Google Scholar and (ii)  indexed (85 % of  AGRIS records) by AGROVOC multilingual Thesaurus, that covers all areas of interest of FAO including food, nutrition, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, environment etc.
