    Scielo articles available to the agricultural community using OAI-PMH in AGRIS AP XML Format 2008
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This article reports a new way of getting access to SciELO full text journal articles using AGRIS AP XML format to harvest SciELO metadata and to include them into the AGRIS repository. It covers the following main steps of the work carried out: • Selecting about 43 journals with agricultural thematic from the Web site of SciELO; • Defining the methodology for harvesting; • Harvesting legacy data and then doing incremental harvesting for the new data from the selected SciELO journal articles for inclusion in the AGRIS XML repository; • Inclusion of SciELO articles and open access to them through the AGRIS search portal at http://www.fao.org/agris/search/search.do?query=%2Bcenter%3A%28XS%29 • Testing and proposals for improvement and future use of this feature. We share the methodology used, problems encountered, and the expected benefit. This work proves that semantically rich metadata for agricultural science and research publications based on the “AGRIS Applic ation Profile” from the SciELO repository can be handled by the OAI-PMH protocol. It shows how the selected subset of metadata created with an ISIS application can be harvested through OAI-PMH protocol, which in turn allows for further creation of additional services by giving greater access and visibility to SciELO data in the new AGRIS AP format compared to the used DC format. The strategy that we adopted was to adapt BIREME’s OAI-PMH plug-in for direct generating of AGRIS AP XML fro m the SciELO application. The existing BIREME OAI-PMH plug-in interface was upgraded to accept and expose metadata using AGRIS AP in addition to the existing DC schema. This approach was elegant but required more time for realization and implementation by BIREME and FAO staff.

    Structured Metadata for Direct Resource Location: A Case Study 2003

    This paper proposes that for scientific and technical information resources, a well-structured and high-quality metadata record contains enough information to find that resource on the Internet, and as a consequence, no additional human labour is needed to create or maintain any links. Research was performed by creating a control group of records from the Online Catalogue of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and searching them in various ways in Google and Metacrawler. Based on results, this method was revised and used on the larger AGRIS database. Results showed not only that the method is successful; it is also highly useful for searching citations. A user interface is suggested, and changes to current cataloguing rules are discussed.

    User guide

    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 90 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.
