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.

Students' information skills in the Latvia University of Agriculture


The advent of the internet along with various other electronic and digital resources has highlighted the issues. Some students are using the internet as their first port of call beyond the reading list. They need to address questions relating to the provenance, accuracy and reliability of the material, which are largely unnecessary in established areas of academic publishing. The information in books, journals and other printed forms has been subject to a variety of quality assurance processes reputable publishers, authors with academic credentials, texts recommended by tutors, careful library spending to ensure a match of material to need. With the internet sources, none of the quality assurance mechanisms can be assumed. The onus is on the user to apply a critical faculty. Information technology has made information superficially much easier to access and use. By reducing all information to a standard format the web page it masks the differences in the way in which information is generated, and differences in the kind of information it is supplying. The information skills model attempts to show the relationships between the competent information user at the base level, and the much more advanced idea of information literacy. The aim of the research was to clarify first year and postgraduate students' information skills. Data processing will be used chi-square and Mann-Whitney methods. First year students will largely be at the bottom of the information skills model, whilst postgraduate and research students will aim to be towards the expert end.
