Ask IFAS and EDIS Publications

Twenty-five years in the making, the Ask IFAS website is the new public face for EDIS, UF/IFAS' collection of online numbered publications. The site is designed to work in a system with two companion resources: the EDIS journal site (ISSN 2576-0009) for management of peer review and for ongoing access to our publications as historical records, and an administrative dashboard for internal users to use for reporting and management activities.

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


EDIS Services include editing, writing, publishing, document production, web content curation
