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.

Efficiency of organic farming companies that operate in an online environment


The Internet is increasingly used as a sales channel for organic products and is providing solutions to many of the obstacles that this sector has traditionally faced. This paper examines factors that account for the efficiency of companies which have opted to offer their organic products through their website. Through a case study of Spanish organic olive oil producers in 2012, it examines the relationship between efficiency and internationalisation or e-business, together with aspects such as the age of the company, the quality of its website and its social networking presence. The results confirm a direct association between efficiency and e-business or exports in organic producers with an Internet presence. They also find a positive association between efficiency and young companies. These results show that business decisions such as opening the company to foreign or online markets can help to improve the efficiency of a sector which, despite being one of the largest producers in the world, encounters major problems in marketing its output.
