We are pleased to announce three upcoming webinars in English, French and Spanish about how AGORA can be browsed to facilitate information searching in the area of nutrition research. AGORA’s main purpose is to improve the quality and effectiveness of agricultural research, education and training in low- and middle-income countries. AGORA/Research4Life provides free or low cost access to peer-reviewed journals (to date, 9,000), datasets and e- books (to date, 23,000) in agriculture and related biological, environmental, social and other research domains.
The upcoming webinar will present AGORA's searching/browsing (by subjects/ thematic search, language, publishers) functionalities enhancing the visibility, accessibility and usability of research outputs in the area of nutrition. Participants can choose between the English, French or Spanish version of the seminar.
