Scientific Information Bulletin (SIB)

Title : Scientific Information Bulletin (SIB), Free Access to Scientific Information and Research

September 26, 2018 - The International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) today released its latest Scientific Information Bulletin (SIB), Free Access to Scientific Information and Research. 

One of the inhibitors to research in food science and technology (FST) in some countries is access to the literature.  Fortunately, primarily through the United Nations, several websites have been developed to provide free access to scientific literature. The purpose of this Scientific Information Bulletin is to provide links to these websites. The information contained here is taken directly from the websites themselves. The figure below identifies by country the number of institutions in that country with access to these sources through the website, “Access to Global On-Line Research in Agriculture” (AGORA). In each website, an institution can register for free access. Note that several of the websites are available in seven languages. IUFoST is pleased to support research in FST by providing this information.

This SIB was prepared by Academy Fellow Dr. Daryl Lund, Professor Emeritus University of Wisconsin-Madison, Past President of the International Academy of Food Science and Technology, on behalf of and approved by the IUFoST Scientific Council.
