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.

Pig-vet: Web-based expert system for pig disease diagnosis


When a pig shows disease symptoms, it is important to make an accurate diagnosis to support control strategies. Diagnosing diseases in pigs requires considerable expertise. Only a few experts have the ability to do this, and each expert has his own specific domain. To make it more generally accessible and reduce the waiting time, an expert system named Pig-Vet has been developed by China Agricultural University. Based on investigations, this paper analyzes users' needs and describes the architecture, main components, and their functions. The system has over 300 rules and 202 images and graphics for different types of diseases and symptoms. It can diagnose 54 types of common diseases of pigs. At present the system is in pilot in north of China. The stage achievements in developing the intellectual expert system of pig disease diagnosis are summarized.
