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.

Semantic Annotation of the CEREALAB Database by the AGROVOC Linked Dataset


The objective of the CEREALAB database is to help the breeders in choosing molecular markers associated to the most important traits. Phenotypic and genotypic data obtained from the integration of open source databases with the data obtained by the CEREALAB project are made available to the users. The CEREALAB database has been and is currently extensively used within the frame of the CEREALAB project. This paper presents the main achievements and the ongoing research to annotate the CEREALAB database and to publish it in the Linking Open Data network, in order to facilitate breeders and geneticists in searching and exploiting linked agricultural resources. One of the main focus of this paper is to discuss the use of the AGROVOC Linked Dataset both to annotate the CEREALAB schema and to discover schema-level mappings among the CEREALAB Dataset and other resources of the Linking Open Data network, such as NALT, the National Agricultural Library Thesaurus, and DBpedia.
