Knowledge awareness and standards in agricultural research in Algeria: Prerequisites for a national information system of high added value

Abstract : This paper gives a review of a survey in 2008 on Algerian scientists specialized in agronomic, veterinary and biological sciences, in order to analyze their information behavior and beliefs to evaluate the importance of shared knowledge standards and values. Algeria strongly suffers from insufficient agricultural production and needs to fit into this logic and to use its search results as source of innovation and performance in its current strategy of reducing its food expenditures. However, one of its limitations consists in the lack of tools to foster the capitalization and enhancement of its scientific output. The answer is to propose an information model that considers all connections between actors involved in research as well as those in development. The collected data reveal an essential need for the creation of a convenient framework for the evaluation and sharing of knowledge as a collective good. It is aimed at the creation of an information system with high added value (National Observatory of the Agronomic Research), including a uniform thesaurus in the field specific to the agronomy for the national device of research.
