An international open access archive for papers related to research in organic agriculture. The archive contains full-text papers in electronic form together with bibliographic information, abstracts and other metadata. It was developed by the Danish Research Centre for Organic Farming, DARCOF, which expanded into the International Centre for Research in Organic Food Systems (ICROFS) in 2008.
Since 2003 there has been co-operation with the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture, FiBL. The main objectives are to facilitate the communication of research papers and proposals, to improve the dissemination and impact of research findings, and to document the research effort. In accordance with these objectives the archive is designed to facilitate international use and cooperation. The archive accepts many kinds of papers: preprints (pre-review), postprints (post-review) and reprints (published) of scientific papers, conference papers and posters, theses, reports, books and book chapters, magazine articles, web products, project descriptions, and other published or unpublished documents.
