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.

Innovation in agricultural digital library services based on Web 2.0


After several years of development, agricultural digital libraries in China have made great achievements in the acquisition and accessibility of documentation and information. However, many of their services focus on the indexing and transfer of inforination, based on a service concept as an agricultural information provider. As internet technology evolves from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0, the manner in which information is produced, organised, and disseminated has changed. User behaviour and their modes of using inforination are also changing. In this paper, we briefly introduce the principle and the operating model of Web 2.0 and go on to analyse the relationship between Web 2.0 and digital library technologies. After analysing some limitations with existing library services, we suggest that Web 2.0 be used in agricultural digital libraries to improve services, focusing on the user and on how to meet their needs.
