Your CIAT Research Online, August 2016
 
Dear All,

The Data and Information Services team is pleased to share with you the latest CIAT Research Online Newsletter.  This newsletter includes all the 2016 research outputs submitted since our last newsletter. Congratulations to all for your publications and other research outputs. Please see a few highlights below for submissions made before 17th August 2016:
  • We have 112 peer-reviewed journal articles in our 2016 records, 102 of these - 91%, are in ISI indexed journals, and 70% are open access. This is an improvement from last year when we had only 89 articles by 23 of September.
  • We have 13 datasets so far in 2016. The data management team is curating 10 additional datasets, making a total of 23. CIAT target this year is to publish 45 open datasets.  Researchers with publications using primary data collected by CIAT will soon receive an email with instructions and assistance on how to publish the data.
  • Did you know that Springer Open Access articles on average achieve 54% more downloads than you would expect for the same article published under a non-open access model?  -  This information was part of feedback provided to Peter Laderach by Springer on this 2015 article.
Notable CIAT Tool: Soils Best Bets Compendium.
Last year the Soils research area launched a Soil Best Bets Compendium which explains in detail practices, methods, technologies or initiatives that have the potential to maintain or increase the organic matter and fertility of soils.

The compendium was recently given a general overhaul to make it more interactive. The new version allows users to comment on existing best bets as well as to add new practices. Best bet practices can now also be queried either through searching by keywords, or filtering by scoring of best bets against resource requirements. The team is grateful to GIZ for financially supporting this overhaul. For more information contact Juliet Braslow or Rolf Sommer.

Sincerely on behalf of the Data, Information, Knowledge group,

Leroy Mwanzia
