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.

Organizational information mapping: a study at Embrapa


Information stored in computer systems are, generally, unknown by most of the members of an organization. Frequently, information needed is available, but people do not know how to access it and about its existence. Having that issue in mind, the following question was posed: how to identify an organization information in its information systems? To answer it, a qualitative, methodological and documental research was carried out to define a map of the information stored in the corporate information systems of Embrapa (Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation). To build the map, a process to systemize the mapping of information was created. The process was based on information architecture concepts, metadata representation, classification of information and relationship with the enterprise business process. The proposed process was applied in three corporate systems of Embrapa. To create the information mapping, sixty three reports were analyzed. Using the map some answers could be answered to improve the decisions, such as: "what information are duplicated in the organization and where are they?"; "which reports have much information?"; "who can access some information?"; "which are the business processes supported by an information system?" It can be concluded that queries available on information systems are not enough to have access to information. An information map facilitates localization and access to the information stored on different corporate systems.
