Scientific and Technical Information Service
Three online services provide access to some or all of CIRAD’s publications. They offer access to bibliographic entries or full-text documents when available.
Agritrop provides free access to CIRAD scientific publications, in line with copyright law. It is fuelled by CIRAD researchers, who deposit their publications.
As of June 2016, the CIRAD publications open archive comprised more than 94 000 references and 25 000 full-text versions of documents on agricultural research and rural development in southern countries. Conditions of use for the 14 000 documents accessible on the Internet via Agritrop are given in the associated bibliographical reference.
In launching this open archive, CIRAD is pursuing its commitment to the global campaign for immediate, open, free and unrestricted access to scientific knowledge.
Almost 17 000 publications produced by CIRAD staff are indexed by author, and also by research collectives, partners, countries, topics and CIRAD priority lines of research . 4 000 publications are openly accessible in full‑text version.
HAL, which is managed by the CNRS, is the national open archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific documents produced by French and overseas educational establishments and public or private laboratories. CIRAD has been a partner in HAL since 2006, and has provided its researchers with a specific deposit interface, HAL-CIRAD, to fuel the national open archive.
As of June 2015, 370 000 full-text documents were accessible via HAL, including 3 000 documents by authors from research units involving CIRAD.
