Welcome to the biodynamic research portal! Here you can filter, sort, and search a collection of biodynamic research reference citations from around the world. They include long-term biodynamic research trial results, journal articles, books, conference proceedings, reports from innovative organizations, and more. Both peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed documents are included. Links are given for the full text where publically available.  (Please note that we don't have access to the text of all articles. In some cases a link is provided to the relevant academic journal's website).

Many more biodynamic-related research references exist than are currently in this database. We are continually adding references as time and resources allow. If you have additions to suggest, please email them to sarah@biodynamics.com

To filter for research articles in the Biodynamics journal, type "biodynamics" in the "Journal Name" box.

To download citations click the orange "CSV" button at bottom right of the list.

To connect with others about research, visit the Biodynamic Research discussion forum

More references can be found by searching Organic EPrints, Biodynamic-Research.netGoogle Scholar and other websites. References from the earlier literature can be found in the Literature Cited section of Spiritual Foundations for the Renewal of Agriculture (Creeger-Gardner translation 1993).

Have fun browsing!
