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.

Fuzzy partitions: A way to integrate expert knowledge into distance calculations


This work proposes a new pseudo-metric based on fuzzy partitions (FPs). This pseudo-metric allows for the introduction of expert knowledge into distance computations performed on numerical data and can be used in various types of statistical clustering or other applications. The knowledge is formalized by-a FP, in which each fuzzy set represents a linguistic concept. The pseudo-metric is designed to respect the FP semantics. The univariate case is first studied, and the pseudo-metric behavior is discussed using synthetic experiments. Then, a multivariate version is proposed as a Minkowski-like combination of univariate distances or semi-distances. The value of the proposal is illustrated with two real-world case studies in the fields of Biology and Precision Agriculture. (C) 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
