  • One of the means of CIARD to foster open Access publishing and open Archives is the AGRIS network. AGRIS is a program that FAO and its member countries set up in the mid 70s. AGRIS centers are normally associated to Agricultural Research Institutes or Agricultural Faculties, sometimes as part of the libraries. They are supporting their institutes and researchers to set up open Repositories. They share common methodologies and standards

    The CIARD Initiative
    Case Studies on Open Archives
  • http://www.ciard.net
  • CIARD challenges
    • Innovation systems in agriculture are critical to the fight against hunger & sustainable use of natural resources
    • Most public domain agricultural information not yet widely accessible
    • New types of research, organisations, and collaboration create new demands
    • Improving the way the partners collaborate requires greater access to, and more effective exchange of, information
    • Rapid agricultural innovation is knowledge-intensive and depends on access to information
  • CIARD vision
    • Organizations that create and possess public agricultural research information, share and disseminate it more widely
    • CIARD partners will
    • coordinate their efforts,
    • promote common formats,
    • adopt open systems
    • Create a global network of public collections of information
    • Coherence in information management will increase efficiency & reduce duplication
    “To make agricultural research information and knowledge truly accessible to all”
  • Open Access to scientific and technical publications in Agriculture is a key Issue for CIARD

    • A three year pilot project funded by DFID, UK (Department for International Development)
    • Collaborative project with FAO, ASARECA-RAIN, CAB International, and selected 5 national institutions
    • Objectives
    • strengthen national and institutional capacities to manage, disseminate and exchange agricultural Information
    • availability of full text content through the IR development
    • promote use of standard tools and methodologies
    • document the process and develop lessons learnt case study

    • To strengthen access and paths to accessibility of nationally generated agricultural knowledge
    • To build capacity in national systems in Africa to develop the institutional and infrastructural environment necessary for the capture, preservation and accessibility and use of their own national agricultural knowledge
    • To complement existing global and national access to research information programmes
    • To use GARA as a platform for preservation and disaster recovery, and for the long term protection of knowledge which might again become inaccessible
    GARA - a CABI initiative
    • Identified principles, workflows, document selection criteria, and permissions
    • Agreed non-destructive digitization to ensure preservation of original copy, which could now be the only copy
