Ask IFAS is a comprehensive, single-source repository of all current UF/IFAS numbered, peer-reviewed publications. Each year, visitors to the Ask IFAS website access over 6,500 free publication titles more than 17.5 million times.

The Ask IFAS website is the public-facing component of the EDIS publication system. For UF/IFAS authors, there is also the EDIS peer-reviewed journal and the EDIS administrative dashboard.

Authors of the articles made available on Ask IFAS submit them first to the EDIS journal (ISSN 2576-0009), where they undergo peer review and administrative approval prior to acceptance for publication on Ask IFAS. The EDIS journal is also where the articles will continue to be available as a permanent academic record of the authors’ work.

The EDIS dashboard is where the accepted manuscripts get turned into web articles and PDFs for Ask IFAS, where the topics and expert lists are managed, and where UF/IFAS experts can manage their articles to ensure that the most relevant and accurate information is always available to Ask IFAS users.

UF/IFAS Center for Public Issues Education

The UF/IFAS Center for Public Issues Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources (or "PIE Center") examines how people think about, form, and act on opinions regarding complex agricultural and natural resources issues. The PIE Center's research and educational programs help enable the public and policymakers to make informed decisions about Florida's agriculture and natural resources sectors.
