VOA3R - Virtual Open Access Agriculture & Aquaculture Repository: Sharing Scientific and Scholarly Research related to Agriculture, Food, and Environment.
Since June 2010 the Library and Archives and Records Management cooperate in a EU-funded project called VOA3R. Together with other European universities the aim is to create a subject digital portal for research in the SLU disciplines.
The entire research process will be be represented in the portal (from raw data to published results) and the different categories of users (researchers, students and the public) will find and use the portal based on their different needs. VOA3R will be a tool and a place where the author and reader can meet.
The portal will harvest its material from open digital repositories that connect to the service. A prerequisite for the research project is that all material is communicated Open Access.
Do you want to follow the project you can read more about it via the links on the right. Are you a researcher at SLU and want to participate and contribute to the development of the portal you can get in touch with any of us who work with e-publishing, eArchive and Open Access (Library and Archives and Records Management). If you already publish in Epsilon, your work will eventually appear in the VOA3R platform.
The VOA3R platform aims at re-using existing and mature metadata and semantics technology to deploy an advanced, community-focused integrated service for the retrieval of relevant open content
