Towards an open archive AGRIS network

A recent paper from FAO outlines how open access architecture and models can be used within the AGRIS Network to share and disseminate research outputs.

The proposed architecture combines the experience and history of the AGRIS network with the new scholarly Open Access publishing paradigm and the international Open Archive Initiative. Implementation of this architecture will lead to a very important space on the web into which thousands of data providers will feed their publications and on which many services will be based. This promises to be a major achievement, comparable only to other big projects like PubMed in the medical sector.
