Database Description


Viticulture and Enology Abstracts (VITIS-VEA) is an international literature database in the field of viticulture, enology and related fields. It provides bibliographic data, keywords and abstracts (where possible) in English for scientific papers from 1969 onwards. Practice-related articles from German-language journals were entered from 1994-2018 and can be printed as an excerpt as "Informationsdienst praxisbezogener Literatur im Weinbau" (technical reviews) in the correspondent section of the database (abstracts provided in German). The service has been supported by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate until 2018.
Until 2010, a controlled indexing vocabulary was used in the form of the
Thesaurus Viticulture and Enology.
