Results of the New AGRIS Vision 2007-2012: advocating for Open Access to Research
Food and Agriculture of the United Nations (FAO)
In order to formalize long-standing practice, the AGRIS secretariat is now disseminating AGRIS data with an Attribution 3.0 Unported (CC BY 3.0) license. This ensures that AGRIS providers receive recognition for their inputs while maintaining the open spirit that is an AGRIS hallmark.
AGRIS has always encouraged attribution by displaying at the foot of each bibliographic resource the updated details of the data provider that produced the record’s metadata. This practice will continue unchanged. With the addition of the CC BY 3.0 license, aggregators and other secondary users of AGRIS data will be required to maintain this attribution metadata when they re-disseminate records.
Data from WUR is missing in AGRIS from 2004 (last year input). The WUR harvest was achieved using the following parameters:
- Base URL: http://library.wur.nl/oai
- Date Range: Jan. 2004 – Dec.2011
- Set: non specified
- Metadata format: agris_ap
- Number of records: 123,409
- Full-text links: 123,409
Crosscheck of two agris ap records
The first check was done to identify the potential aggregation of duplicated data, that is data harvested from WUR that are already present in the AGRIS index.
The last set of data as was submitted by WUR in 2004 and the harvest was done starting from the end of 2004.
Since the ARN differs in its compilation from what AGRIS has and what we harvested, we should see how we can dedup data using a string match with titles, but then, we are facing the problem of the quality of the metadata. The data as is indexed in AGRIS is richer, but the new WUR OAI-PMH contains the link to the full text. Maybe we could merge, the thing should be studied.
