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.

MetaPath: An electronic knowledge base for collating, exchanging and analyzing case studies of xenobiotic metabolism


The MetaPath knowledge base was developed for the purpose of archiving, sharing and analyzing experimental data on metabolism, metabolic pathways and crucial supporting metadata. The MetaPath system grew out of the need to compile and organize the results of metabolism studies into a systematic database to facilitate data comparisons and evaluations. Specialized MetaPath data evaluation tools facilitate the review of pesticide metabolism data submitted for regulatory risk assessments as well as exchange of results of complex analyses used in regulation and research. Customized screen editors called Composers were developed to automate data entry into MetaPath while also streamlining the production of agency specific study summaries such as the Data Evaluation Records (DER) used by the US EPA Office of Pesticide Programs. Efforts are underway through an Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) work group to extend the use of DER Composers as harmonized templates for rat metabolism, livestock residue, plant residue and environmental degradation studies.
