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. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

ATOL: The Multi-species Livestock Trait Ontology


This paper presents the multi-species Animal Trait Ontology for Livestock (ATOL) and the methodology used for its design. ATOL has been designed as a reference source for indexing phenotype databases and scientific papers. It covers five major topics related to animal productions: growth and meat quality, animal nutrition, milk production, reproduction and welfare. It is composed of species-independent concepts subsuming species-specific ones so that cross-species and species-specific reasoning can be performed consistently. In order to ensure a large consensus, three complementary approaches have successively been applied to its design: reuse of existing ontologies, integration of production-specific livestock traits by a large team of domain experts and curators and terminology analysis of scientific papers. It resulted in a detailed taxonomy of 1,654 traits that is available at http://www.atol-ontology.com
