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.

Making Sense of Human-Environment Interaction: Policy Guidance Under Conditions of Imperfect Data


Changes in the policy and legal environment may support adaptive environmental management. The introductory chapter of this volume referred to this set of change as belonging to the institutional environment. We distinguished this set of change from institutional arrangements: access to markets, information, technology, financial resources, skilled staff with clear roles and responsibilities. The dispersion of institutional arrangements will most certainly differ across space district, village or watershed. Process variables like connectivity to critical infrastructure such as roads, electricity or internet and motivated agency staff may mediate access to institutional arrangements. The chapter distinguishes between process variables and access to services like soil and water conserving techniques. Realisation of higher order service outcomes like delivery of affordable and reliable water services like soil conserving farming techniques, sustainable water sources or connection to a sewer network are very often mediated by market and state forces that support planning and technical development. Further, in many situations lack of socio-ecological data hampers planning and management interventions. This chapter grapples with some of these issues through an analysis of soil conservation interventions in Laos. In doing so, the chapter emphasises the importance of constitutional choice, collective choice and operational rules that we discussed in the first chapter of this volume.
