Open access in agriculture: a survey

Do you manage an open access respository or are involved in the open access movement?

Then you may be interested in knowing that the FAO of the United Nations has recently launched a survey on Open Access in agriculture and related sciences. This short survey (less then 10 minutes) is designed to get a detailed overview of the state of the art of Open Access (OA) and Open Archives Initiative (OAI) within the Agriculture Research Community.

The survey will be open until the end of January 2010. The results will be made available online in the CIARD Ring to give all participants the opportunity to take a look at and comment the results. The conclusions drawn will be presented at the IAALD XIIIth World Congress on 26-29 April 2010, Montpellier, France.

The survey is available in English, French and Spanish at
