    The role of AGRIS in providing global agricultural information to boost productivity and food security 2014

    Access to agricultural information ensures that stakeholders in the farming system can make informed decisions towards increasing agricultural productivity. Agricultural information and data are stored in distributed systems and repositories (using different pieces of software and databases) that expose a variety of research outputs with various metadata formats. Often grey literature, journal articles and technical reports are lost as technologies are not employed to ensure that such resources are online, accessible and shared widely within the agricultural stakeholders. This paper reviews AGRIS (International System for Agricultural Science and Technology) as an international collaboration and partnership in collecting and using agricultural bibliographic data to enable researchers and policy makers retrieve related agricultural and scientific information and data. AGRIS database, therefore, uses bibliographic data as an aggregator of locating related content across information syste ms available on the Web through taking advantage of the Semantic Web and Linked Open Data technologies. Besides linking related content, AGRIS has a potential to gather like-minded researchers around AGRIS content to discuss and share ideas – this implies creating a social media layer by creating AGRIS social media. Keywords: AGRIS, AIMS, AGROVOC, Agriculture, Linked Data, Agricultural Information, food productions, bibliographic datasets.

    The International System for Agricultural Science and Technology (AGRIS) is one of the most comprehensive databases for food and agricultural scientific literature worldwide. Accessible through a web portal, millions of bibliographic records in more than 100 different languages are available for free to global users. An international network of data providers, including publishers, governments and organizations, volunteer information (metadata) about science publications. These records are provided in multilingual formats and frequently include full text links to connect users to scientific literature worldwide.Over recent years, AGRIS has evolved to become an acknowledged information resource worldwide by moving from paper to digital, and from a centralized model to a distributed network. This guide aims to update the AGRIS community, in particular those who use the AGRIS database to find scientific literature on food and agriculture, about the best ways to engage with and search the database.

    Migrating Bibliographic Datasets to the Semantic Web: the AGRIS case 2010
    Also available in:

    AGRIS is among the most comprehensive online collections of agricultural and related sciences information. It is a growing glob-al catalog of 5 million high-quality structured bibliographic records indexed from a worldwide group of providers. AGRIS relies heavily on the AGROVOC thesaurus for its indexing. Following the conversion of that thesaurus into a SKOS concept-scheme and its publication as Linked Open Data (LOD), the entire set of AGRIS records was also triplified and released as LOD. As part of this exercise, OpenAGRIS, a semantic mashup application, was developed to dynamically combine AGRIS data with external data sources, using a mixture of SPARQL queries and web services. The re-engineering of AGRIS for the Semantic Web raised numerous issues regarding the relative lack of administrative metadata required to compellingly address the proof and trust layers of the Semantic Web stack, both within the AGRIS repository and in the external data pulled into OpenAGRIS. The AGRIS te am began a process of disambiguation and enrichment to continue moving toward an entity-based view of its resources, beginning with the tens of thousands of journals attached to its records. The evolution of the system, the issues raised during the triplification process and the steps necessary for publishing the result as LOD content are hereby discussed and evaluated.
