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.

The Analysis of Information Systems and Communication Networks for Organic and Conventional Hazelnut Producers in Samsun Province of Turkey


This research presents an analysis of agricultural information systems (AIS) and communication networks (CN) for organic and conventional hazelnut producers in Samsun province of Turkey. Structured interviews were used to collect the main data from 64 randomly selected conventional hazelnut producers and all the organic hazelnut producers (39) living in the study area. The AIS and CN theories used in this research provided the identification of the systems' components and their communication networks and the understanding of how successfully they work and how to improve their performance. The main function of the systems was the dissemination of hazelnut related information. Specifically, the lack of information access and supports from the organic project related, professional and mass media information sources resulted in developing social information sources to exchange information and diffuse technology among the producers within their villages. It can be recommended that more functional cooperation and information exchange between personal and institutional information sources are needed to stimulate conventional hazelnut producers to convert to organic production systems.
