Livestock Research for Rural Development, electronic journal Website: http://sunny.plants.ox.ac.uk/homepages/
The electronic journal Livestock Research for Rural Development whose distribution on diskettes was supported by CTA in its early years, is now available on the Internet's World Wide Web enabling researchers and development workers access to information as soon as it has been approved for dissemination. The journal is now considered sustainable and no longer dependent on donor agencies, according to Dr Thomas Preston who co-founded it with Dr Andrew Speedy of Oxford University. It was one of the first scientific journals to be made available exclusively in electronic format, he says, and was published by the Centre for Research in Sustainable Agricultural Systems in Colombia. It is now available in 'pdf' and 'html' formats which can be easily downloaded from the Internet for printing or storage. The tenth anniversary of the journal is being commemorated by the issue of a compilation CD-ROM holding a complete set of back issues, plus a scanned version of a second journal Tropical Animal Production which ran from 1976 to 1985.
