Description

Virtual Open Access Agriculture & Aquaculture Repository: Sharing Scientific and Scholarly Research related to Agriculture, Food, and Environment. 

Open access to scientific/scholarly content removes the access barriers related to copyright retention to the outcomes of research. Several for-profit and non-profit cases have demonstrated their sustainability in this endeavour to date. However, leveraging the full potential of open access requires considering all the elements and aspects of scientific/scholarly work and not only unrestricted access to the final outcomes, i.e. the papers.

Target Users

The target end user communities can be categorized in the following:

  • Researchers/academics,
  • Practitioners and
  • Students (can be considered a subset of the needs of the other categories).
