AgEcon Search becomes SPARC Partner

AgEcon Search was recently named a SPARC Partner. As a Partner in the Scientific Communities program, AgEcon Search is recognized as one of a growing number of non-profit portals that serve the needs of a discrete scientific community by aggregating peer-reviewed research.

SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) is an international alliance of more than 800 academic and research libraries working to create a more open system of scholarly communication. SPARC's advocacy, educational, and publisher partnership programs encourage expanded dissemination of research. SPARC is on the Web at http://www.arl.org/sparc.
