e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Integration of a Scientific and Scholarly Research Journal's Content into the Central International Repository


The paper treats effective options of integration of open access content of a scientific and scholarly research journal's local archives into the central international repository, here in the form of a study case related to agricultural economics and informatics. Open access publishing has spread widely in recent years. Open access to scientific/scholarly content removes various barriers, first of all barriers related to copyright retention. The open archives. platform aims at making accessible available materials on web pages, using mutual sharing of metadata among repositories, their publishing and archiving. In the case of the above stated scientific and scholarly research journal's local archives version 2.0 of OAI-PMH (Open Archive Iniciative - Protocol for Metadata Harvesting) is used for metadata harvesting. This protocol defines the mechanism of the metadata's records. harvesting. It means that OAI-PMH provides a simple technical means to make metadata open to services based on widely-spread standards HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) and XML (Extensible Markup Language). The service for the basic level of the metadata exchange provides support for unqualified DC (Dublin Core), e. g. the metadata format based on an international agreement defining 15 core elements for an easy description of the source objects. The architecture of open access content of the scientific and scholarly research journal's local archives itself determines two logical roles - the role of the data provider and the one of the service provider. The Czech University of Life Sciences Prague as the data provider controls the data store of the scientific and scholarly research journal and makes accessible source objects stored in the local archives via their display for metadata harvesting by the service provider. The foreign partner UAH (Universidad de Alcal) as the service provider uses the harvested metadata and the content of the scientific and scholarly research journal for the central international repository together with other added functions such as search engines, the system of the public reviews. comparison, etc.
