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.

Semantic modeling in farming systems research - The case of the agricultural management definition module


Farming Systems Research studies agricultural systems and their interaction with the natural environment and ecosystems. Agro-ecosystems are highly complex due to the many feedbacks between natural processes, high geographical diversity and human factors involved both as the farmer's decisions at farm household level and as the policy implementations at regional, national or European levels. This paper presents a novel approach for developing an Agricultural Management Definition Module (AMDM), by exploiting ontologies and semantic modeling. Specifically, a declarative approach has been utilized for conceptualizing farming systems and the management alternatives of a farm household. This conceptual model has been implemented as an ontology that ultimately has been used as the basis for software development and integration. This paper presents in detail the methodology used for developing AMDM and a real-world installation, part of the SEAMLESS integrated project.
