AGRIS team would like to inform all AGRIS users that the user registration possibility is now up and running. There are some further technical improvements to the user log in area and these will be communicated in due course. We take this opportunity to summarize the benefits of AGRIS service and to provide details on how users can familiarize themselves with it.
There are plenty of information resources about agriculture
and their visibility, accessibility, consistency and completeness diverge enormously. AGRIS (International Information System For The Agricultural Science And Technology) – as a global public database providing access to bibliographic information on agricultural science and technology –, aims at increasing access to this information by exposing and linking bibliographical (meta)data on agriculture domain together. In this way,
AGRIS is actively addressing gaps in the available bibliographical information
(abstracts and citations of articles, books, conference papers, thesis and other resource types) in agricultural and related domains, as well as providing a range of ways for this information to be accessed, linked and shared.
AGRIS bibliographical records are indexed with
AGROVOC - a FAO’s multilingual thesaurus published as LOD in a SKOS version. AGROVOC is used by AGRIS as backbone to link AGRIS records and externals resources. The objective is to increase the ‘use and usefulness’ of the available information, i.e. to support more informed research, debates on and policy making in land governance, to promptly share data/information about best practices and promising e-agriculture innovations.
The inherent value of AGRIS
is that is points users to where they can find resources indexed, however a number of AGRIS resources (to date, 8,420,558 bibliographical records) come with a link to full-text records (accessed through Google) which are stored elsewhere.
