Open access journal: International Food and Agribusiness Management Review

Posted by Petr Kosina on , in News

https://www.ifama.orgThe International Food and Agribusiness Management Review (IFAMR) publishes high quality, peer reviewed, scholarly articles on topics related to the practice of management in the food and agribusiness industry. The Journal provides managers, researchers and teachers a forum where they can publish and acquire research results, new ideas, applications of new knowledge, and discussions of issues important to the worldwide food and agribusiness system. The Review is published electronically on this website.

The Review welcomes scholarly articles on business, public policy, law and education pertaining to the global food system. Articles may be applied or theoretical, but must relevant to managers or management scholars studies, industry interviews, and book reviews are also welcome.

The Review also reflects agribusiness scholarship world-wide with over half of its Editorial Board, Managing Editors, and article submissions coming from outside the United States. We welcome inquiries from scholars seeking to become more involved with the management of the IFAMR whether as a Managing Editor, a Special Issue Editor, a member of the Editorial Board, or as a Reviewer.

Pete Shelton from IFPRI visiting CIMMYT library

Posted by Petr Kosina on , in News

Pete Shelton, Information & Knowledge Management Specialist, from International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) is visiting CIMMYT library to present approaches and applications implemented by IFPRI library and help us to get up to the speed with the web 2.0 tools for library and information management. A lot of learning on both sides ;o). Some interesting ideas or action points for us:

  • IFPRI is using EZProxy software to facilitate access to subscribed journals to out posted (or travelling) staff members. It seems to be much more viable and simple option than setting proxy access that CIMMYT colleagues have to do …
  • IFPRI is using SurveyMonkey-based survey to its research staff to get yearly update on usefulness of subscription to their set of the journals or need for substitution of some.
  • Many IFPRI applications (including library catalog and and some databases and social media) are hosted by CGnet in California.
  • We need to make sure that the metadata of CIMMYT publications are harvestable by OAIster
  • Harzing (Publish or Perish) – interesting open source application for citation reporting (alternative to expensive ISI web of science)
  • JSTOR – location to search for back issues of journals and articles
  • and we are seriously considering to also enter WORLDCAT.

Pete also presented very clever way that IFPRI is using to enable their research staff to maintain their public biography online (example) with link to most recent (or highlighted) publications – feed from Mendeley.

But this is just a beginning. Tomorrow Pete will be presenting to the website and intranet team how IFPRI handles project websites and than we spend the rest of the week going into technical details of all the technical stuff that CIMMYT would like to implement.
