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.

The purpose of this paper is to suggest ideas that may balance gender bias in engineering fields, and how to address a nationwide problem in the U.S. industrial competitiveness with regards to female participation. The Census Bureau estimates that 50.9 percent of the population in the U.S. is female, while only 11 percent of them are engaged in the engineering workforce ([40]). The National Science Foundation (NSF) reports that, overall, women earn bachelor degrees in fields other than science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Existing research suggests that the reason may be connected to the notion that engineering is a man's domain, while women are generally interested in environmental issues. In addition, research indicates a trend where women are more likely to occupy a larger percentage of the workforce in environmental issues such as bioengineering. This proposed activity implements an Internet-Controlled Integrated Fish Farm Environmental curriculum activity to encourage female participation and combine engineering core concepts. The study involves a project to raise fish indoors while maintaining a garden-type environment through integrated sustainable systems. Through this activity, female students can participate in water quality research, applying fundamental concepts of chemical engineering. In addition, the students manipulate the water recycling system and apply concepts of motion and flow stability related to mechanical engineering. Also, they become familiar with concepts of digital sensors related to electrical and computer engineering. Through the fish farm curriculum activity, students will have opportunity to: (1) work to implement the integrated sustainable systems to apply concepts and principles of networking; (2) be exposed to diverse concepts, principles, and fundamentals associated with different fields of engineering; (3) discover and expand their knowledge about the various fields including mechanical, computer, and chemical engineering; (4) connect their interest in environmental issues with different types of engineering concepts; and (5) identify that these integrated sustainable systems are crucial for the survival of the fishes of an Internet-Controlled Integrated Fish Farm Environmental curriculum activity. The intention of this project is to determine if female students will be likely to pursue an engineering career and thereby increase the percentage of female participation in the field of engineering in the U.S.
