  2. 2. Introduction (1) Company is based on knowledge and ensures its intellectualcapital. It is perceived as equivalent "raw materials" in the industry. In agricultural research : results must be translated intoinnovations, creating new processes for agricultural enterprises. Digital transformed the context of production and distributionof documents in the scientific world. Implementation of information systems : better transmissionand dissemination of knowledge through digital documents andscientific production Collaborative work between the scientific communities.ISKO - Poland, Warsaw, 15-16 April 2013 2
  3. 3. Introduction (2) - Situation of Algeria Algeria faces a food invoice of 3,6 billion dollars. Scientific, industrial and economic information, as astrategic resource is necessary to manage andexploit in aid of all its sectors of activities, moreparticularly of the agricultural sector. That cannot be done without the installation ofmechanisms supporting the sharing of knowledgeand allowing the analysis of the results of thenational agronomic research.ISKO - Poland, Warsaw, 15-16 April 2013 3
  4. 4. Introduction (3) - Investigation Our investigation beyond the single issue of adequacy, butit is interested on collaborative work and the interest ofsuch a device. This question lead us to the following questions: Have the researchers and professionals this culture ofknowledge sharing through the use of digital documents? What is the role of digital documents, via the collaborativeplatform? Is science really fueling the economy? Are researchers and professionals ready to supply thefuture information system to ensure the sustainability?ISKO - Poland, Warsaw, 15-16 April 2013 4
  5. 5. Survey Design and Methodology First Survey : National survey was conducted of overthree hundred researchers in Algeria. A total of 500 set of questions were distributed. The gathering lasted five months (February - June 2008). We received 345 returns, a rate of 69% of validquestionnaires. Second survey : 305 professionals of agribusiness. A total of 500 questionnaires were distributed. The gathering lasted seven months (June - December2010). We received 305 return, a rate of 61% of responses.ISKO - Poland, Warsaw, 15-16 April 2013 5
  6. 6. COLLABORATIVE USE OF DIGITAL DOCUMENTSBY THE ALGERIAN AGRICULTURAL RESEARCHERS The use of digital documents : to assess the needsof scientists in terms of information through thefuture information Algerian agriculturalresearch system. This analysis was based on the needs expressedby researchers for access to information in awide range of electronic documents: the nationaldata bases research, national and internationalpublications and databases on the actors.ISKO - Poland, Warsaw, 15-16 April 2013 6

  11. 11. USE OF DIGITAL DOCUMENTS FOR A PRACTICALKNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT IN ALGERIAN FOODCOMPANIES The information and knowledge are not real value oncepooled and shared among all employees of an organizationwithin the framework of the execution of their duties. These information sources can be used within the company(experts, files, reports,...) and / or external (database,journals, networking skills...). Many sources of information use have been proposed to therespondents to understand which ones are the mostpracticed. To clarify our study, we therefore distinguished two types ofinformation sources, one call formal and the other informal.ISKO - Poland, Warsaw, 15-16 April 2013 11

Conclusion Algerian scientists and professionals integratethis dimension in collaborative work toestablish collaboration on common themesemerging through the use of various electronicdocuments. This is the price that will emerge a truecollective intelligence characterized by theproduction of knowledge This can be done with the use of digitaldocuments via an Algerian collaborativeplatform of agriculture.ISKO - Poland, Warsaw, 15-16 April 2013 16
  17. 17. Future Prospects : Agricultural InformationSystems in the MaghrebNeed for the creation of a favourable frameworkfor the division of knowledge to get morecollective intelligence.The creation of an information system of highadded value will be a tool of piloting andincreasing the value of the scientific research.Development of several databases on theinstitutions, the research laboratories, theprojects, the researchers and theirpublications.ISKO - Poland, Warsaw, 15-16 April 2013 17
