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.

A linguistics-based framework for modeling spatio-temporal occurrences and purposive change


We present a linguistics-based approach for modeling spatio-temporal change and in particular, purposive change, as in the change in land uses. We extend Talmy's theory of force dynamics in language by means of the Aristotelian distinction between constitutive, agentive, and telic dimensions in things, to derive a framework for describing different kinds of occurrences and changes, both purposive and not. The framework, which can span any number of spatio-temporal scales and granularities, may be seen as a tentative ontology of change that highlights the role of goal-directed action. We illustrate our argument by means of excerpts from a historic text detailing a cattle-ranching operation.
