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.

Research and practice: environmental action for improving water quality in cotton catchments since 1990


In the modern era, agriculture must seek to be environmentally sustainable, an obligation now considered as a social contract. This demands that its activities do no significant harm, where the natural resources sustaining it are fully safeguarded, but of necessity in the context of profitable agriculture. The requirement to minimise the environmental impact of the necessary agrochemicals and pesticides in waterways is especially demanding. In the past 20 years, the Australian cotton industry has approached this obligation in various ways, needing extensive planning, learning from past experiences, but it can be legitimately claimed, with significant success. This success has been achieved at some cost, requiring large numbers of personnel, time and resources. This review aims to document the strategies that have been employed, how these required effective research management and how the research data generated was applied. To the extent that this complex program of participatory action has succeeded, while also acknowledging some dramatic failures, other areas of agriculture can also benefit by identification of the key factors contributing to success.
