Open access to Australian research outputs through relaunched AANRO

The redeveloped AANRO database is launched in Canberra Australia on 9 September.

Designed as a national single entry point to agriculture and natural resource management research information, Australian Agriculture and Natural Resources Online (AANRO) makes the outputs of publicly funded research readily available and sets a new standard in open access for agriculture and natural resource management.

It has been developed as a collaborative effort between the 14 rural research and development corporations, the Primary Industries Standing Committee and Natural Resource Management Standing Committee members. This involves more than 36 partner organisations. There has also been considerable investment by the Climate Change Research Strategy for Primary Industries (CCRSPI) partners.

AANRO includes three major databases which are linked – a research in progress database, a researcher profile database (to enable person to person contact), and a final research report database.
