Summary: Networking became a popular way of promoting research in the 1970s and 1980s. Networks are particularly common in the agricultural sciences, an indication of the interdisciplinary nature of agricultural research and development as well as the widespread recognition of the benefits of collaboration by scientists and donors. This database covers only international networks related to agricultural research; collaborative research efforts on a national scale are not covered. Four major types of networks are recognized: information exchange, material exchange, scientific consultations, and collaborative research networks. This database was organized to facilitate the writing of a book, "Networking in International Agricultural Research", which is being published by Cornell University Press in 1990.
