AGRIS, the International System for Agricultural Science and Technology

Abstract

AGRIS is one of the most comprehensive databases for food and agricultural scientific literature worldwide. Accessible through a web portal, millions of bibliographic records in 90 different languages are available for free to global users. An international network of data providers, including publishers, governments and organizations, volunteer information (metadata) about science publications. These records are provided in multilingual formats and frequently include full text links to connect users to scientific literature worldwide.

Over recent years, AGRIS has evolved to become an acknowledged information resource worldwide by moving from paper to digital, and from a centralized model to a distributed network. This guide aims to update the AGRIS community about the latest technical developments, recommended standards and various ways to engage with AGRIS.
