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.

Ontology-Based Agri-Environmental Planning for Whole Farm Plans


Motivated by our experiences with agri-environmental information management and planning for the sustainable land use initiative we present an ontology-based approach for aligning whole farm plan data with other data collections of interest. Semantic interoperability is of utmost importance to enable seamless integration across multiple data collections. Web-based systems combining GIS-technology with ontologies can support environmental information analysts in assessing the interplay between natural resources, farming practices and environmental issues on farms and in generating farm-specific recommendations for sustainable land management. At the same time such systems unlock data collected or produced during the generation and monitoring of whole farm plans for new applications and broader user groups, including agronomists and scientists working in related disciplines.
