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.

A web-based, data retrieval application was developed (Sustaining the Earths Watersheds, Agricultural Research Data System, or STEWARDS) as part of the USDA-ARS Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) to increase the availability and accessibility of scientific data to the research community. The STEWARDS application is GIS-based and couples temporal and spatial aspects of data collected from each site within a watershed. The STEWARDS database and software design accommodates research data with heterogeneous characteristics and format, and captures rich descriptive information that is important to understand the data from complex, dynamic research programs. The database includes soil, water, climate, land management, and socio-economic data from multiple watersheds across the U.S. and can provide data commonly needed for hydrologic modeling and assessments. The release of STEWARDS marks an advance in the research capacity for the ARS research watershed network by improving access to well-documented and consistently organized data and is becoming the prototype of additional data and software designs for other ARS research projects.
