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.

Avian influenza multiple: Enacting realities and dealing with policies in South Africa's farmed ostrich sector


This paper draws on Annemarie Mat's empirical philosophy as a way of handling the science of avian influenza in South Africa's ostrich industry. This is an agricultural industry in rural South Africa that has recently suffered severely from infections of highly pathogenic avian influenza. The paper draws on the 'materials and methods' section of scientific papers, and interviews with scientists, veterinarians and ostrich farmers, to argue that the practices associated with the disease enact multiple avian influenzas. The paper describes these different avian influenza realities and how they relate. Finally, I examine the relationship between multiplicity and policy. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
