Current Research Information System (CRIS)
The CRIS national database can still be searched: http://cris.nifa.usda.gov/search.html
Since1966, CRIS was the federal automated system for storing and retrieving information on current agricultural and forestry research. Since then the system has expanded to include a number of education, extension and integrated activities. All research sponsored or conducted by the USDA were required to be documented in CRIS. Over 95 percent of all publicly supported research in the program areas mentioned above was documented in CRIS, and the system contains both management and scientific data. The current national database consists of more than 30,000 research projects. Most CRIS data is available to the public.
