Published on
July 29, 2005

Food safety, Ethics for Life scientists, Avian influenza. Just a selection from the many subjects discussed during the workshops organised by Frontis, which were aimed at interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge on typically 'Wageningen' news.

Within the framework of the stimulation policy around Open Access the section Docupublishing of the Library contributes to the electronic publication of the UR Frontis series. Meanwhile 15 volumes are freely available in this series. Springer publisher's handles the printed version of this series and there recently part 13 has appeared in print entitled: "Farming for Health" (translated freely: Zorgboerderijen).

Of course all volumes are included in the Library's catalogue.

For a complete survey and for downloading of chapters: Wageningen UR Frontis Series.
