ROTOLO, G.C et al. Ponderación de la información generada en la Estación Experimental Agropecuaria Oliveros del INTA (INTA EEA Oliveros) mediante el proceso analítico jerárquico. RIA. Rev. investig. agropecu. [online]. 2016, vol.42, n.2, pp.138-143. ISSN 1669-2314.

The scientific and technological knowledge subsystem becomes one of the main components of a country cultural capital, fostering its economic development. The National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA) is a science and technology body in Argentina whose objectives include the generation and transfer of scientific knowledge to the agricultural sector through experimental stations and research institutes located in different regions of the country. Research, experimentation and knowledge transfer produce scientific publications, manuals, technical reports, courses, congress presentations and workshops. The objectives of this study were: 1) to classify the way of featuring knowledge production in the EEA Oliveros, as well as to select and define the criteria and alternatives used for weighting (without seeking to qualify it) the original and elaborate knowledge produced, and 2) to apply the weighting to the EEA Oliveros' knowledge production for the year 2014. A team of researchers and extensionists was gathered to classify, group and weight the research/extension produced by the EEA Oliveros. The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method was used for this study. It allows to prioritize a set of elements based on an established valuation scale, according to the team individuals' judge, preferences and agreement. The results showed that the products generated as original information (OI=journals with and without peer review and congress presentation) accounted for 60.8% of total knowledge production; elaborated information (EI=books, book's chapters, manuals and audiovisual production) 10.8% and the knowledge transfer (KT=courses, seminars and lectures) 28.4%.The methodology was useful to weigh the generation of knowledge. These results can be used to compare the production of knowledge between periods, between INTA units by the consensus of the criteria used, and even it can be used as input for analysis or evaluation of other issues. However, it is desirable to periodically review and adjust the selected criteria and alternatives to join the possible research changes along the periods that go through on approaches and developments.
