Draft guidelines for making information accessible

The CIARD (Coherence in Information for Agricultural Research for Development) is a consortium of organizations invloved in agricultural development.  It just produced draft guidelines for best practices for making information accessible. To From the CIARD website:” To ensure that public domain research outputs – in the form of information, data and knowledge – form part of a global ‘knowledge commons’ for agriculture, these outputs should be created, assembled, handled and disseminated in ways that ensure that they will be as Available, Accessible and Applicable as possible.”

The checklist could also apply to those of us involved in fisheries, aquaculture and oterh natural resource information.
