Free trial for members to use scientific database

Published on 23rd March 2022

Members are invited to sign up for a free 14-day full access trial to The Burleigh Dodds Science (BDS) Database, which is the central hub for more than 1,700 chapters on the key research, topics, and themes across agricultural science, covering crops, livestock and forestry. 

Agricultural journalists can use this content as a trusted resource for background research to find expert points of view or contributors.

This network of 4,000 world-renowned agricultural professionals can be used to identify candidates for interviews, comment, opinion, and fact checking, as well as guest columnist roles.

Burleigh Dodds Science Publishing says: “As providers of information to a wide-ranging group of stakeholders across the agricultural sector, one of the main challenges many of our customers continually encounter is information overload.

“With the ever-increasing amount of published research, often researchers simply do not have the time or resources to navigate through it and locate the information relevant to them. This is a universal challenge not limited to agriculture and we tackle this challenge head on with the BDS Database.”

It is available 24/7 and gives the user hassle free online access to 1700+ reviews of research in agriculture science.

Journalists can include items from the BDS database within their articles as further reading and introduce their readers to a trusted agricultural science resource enabling them to further their own knowledge.

To sign up to start the free trial, Guild members need to send their contact details to BDS by clicking here.
