Burleigh Dodds Database

Members of Agri-TechE will have access the world’s most comprehensive agricultural science publishing database for 90 days, the first in a series of member-to-member offers it was announced at REAP.

Dr Belinda Clarke, Director of Agri-TechE said:  “We were excited to launch a new initiative to help members help each other. The scheme will enable members to offer opportunities and benefits to other members, and we are delighted to announce Burleigh Dodds Science Publishing as founder partners in the scheme.”

Burleigh Dodds curates an agricultural science database, compiled by 4,000 internationally recognised experts with over 120 titles and 1,800 chapters. The resource can be customised to meet the user’s requirements, so they are presented with the most relevant information.

All Agri-TechE members have free access to the database from 1st Dec 2022 to 28th Feb 2023, with an additional discount on purchase of any books.

Rob Burleigh says:  “The trial provides a good opportunity for members to explore the database and see which content is of greatest value to them. Recently published and forthcoming volumes have focused on the latest work on soil carbon sequestration, pollinators and crop sensors. It can be hugely time saving to have all this information available in one place.

“For those involved in the livestock sector we have two new books on poultry flock health and poultry meat quality, as well as another new book focussed on pig herd health and production.”

Following the trial the user will be able to select the content they are most interested in and Burleigh Dodds can tailor the database to specific requirements.

Burleigh Dodds had a stand at REAP 2022, and one of the delegates was delighted with  Professor Watkins book, Advances in post-harvest management of horticultural produce.  She said: “It’s great. All the key information is included, meaning that I don’t have to waste time looking elsewhere for the key research – it’s all here in one place.”
