A free, open access repository of full-text scholarly literature in agricultural and applied economics developed and maintained by the University of Minnesota Library and the Department of Economics, but with financial support from USDA, the American Agricultural Economics Association, and the Farm Foundation. Serving as a permanent archive for research materials, authors and organizations can submit working papers, conference papers, journal articles, and other materials directly into the system. The service currently provides access to the contents of 19 scholarly journals and weekly email alerts are offered for announcing new content. Materials in other languages are accepted, but English abstracts are required. Results of searches are returned as PDFs. Topics covered include sub-disciplines such as agribusiness, food supply, natural resource economics, environmental economic, policy issues, agricultural trade, and economic development. AgEcon Search is powered by Dspace and will be released in a new format soon. The beta version includes FAQs, usage statistics, and a persistent URL displayed in each record. The University of Minnesota also is a member of AgNIC and provides agricultural economics content to that system.
