The AGRIS platform provides free access to more than 12 million records in 90 different languages. It facilitates access to referring books, journal articles, monographs, book chapters, datasets and grey literature - including unpublished scientific and technical reports, theses, dissertations and conference papers in the area of food and agriculture.
Scientific information and data included in AGRIS are used by an average of 10 million users per year worldwide - and the number of partners is constantly growing. AGRIS is also indexed and made accessible via Google Scholar, thus extending the global access to scientific information and data.
More than 450 institutions including research centers, academic institutions, publishers, governmental bodies, development programmes, international and national organizations from 150 countries are currently contributing to AGRIS.
By participating in AGRIS, organizations’ publications are contributing towards bridging the access gap for scientific literature being exposed to an international audience through the wide distribution of AGRIS.
AGRIS’s main impact is the constant increase of the flow and access of information in the food and agriculture domain. AGRIS provides a great opportunity to increase analysis of agricultural performance and, consequently, help inform agriculture investment, innovation and policy to drive changes toward increasing sustainability in the agriculture sector, which matches the goal of living in a world with zero hunger.
