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.

Bystander injury evaluation of children from midwestern agricultural operations


Background. With more than a million youth living on agricultural operations. it is important for parents to understand the consequences of bystander injuries that children experience in these environments We identified the childhood injuries for bystander status and compared the severity of these injuries to the working children in the Regional Rural Injury Study-II (RRIS-II) Methods RRIS-II followed 16,546 children (similar to 85% of eligible) from rural communities in the Midwest for two six-month recall periods in 1999 and 2001 Demographic, injury, and exposure data were collected through comprehensive computer-assisted telephone interviews Child injuries were cataloged using narrative scenarios into four categories (a) directly work-related: (b) indirectly work-related. (c) non-working accomplice, and (d) non-working attendant: the latter three all being bystander categories Poisson regression modeling was used to calculate rates of bystander injuries Frequencies were used for comparison of severity measures Results Among the 463 child injuries (aged <20 yrs), 102 were bystander injuries Of the bystander-related injuries, 14 were identified as indirectly work-related (working bystanders). 27 as non-working accomplice (passengers/tag-alongs), and GO as non-working attendant (playing on the operation) The overall rate of bystander injuries was 64 per 1,000 people. 95% CI (5 0, 8 1) Males, compared with females, had more than twice the injury rate (8.7: 95% CI 6 4-11 8, and 3 9, 95% CI 2 7-5 7, per 1,000 people, respectively) Bystanders in this population had more severe injuries with 4% having life-threatening circumstances, of these. 4% of the accomplices and 2% of the attendants subsequently died Conclusions Children who live or work on agricultural operations are vulnerable to many hazards. Therefore, this study examined child injuries and found a clear difference in the consequences of these injuries between working-related and bystanding-related injuries Impact on Industry Unlike occupations such as construction and mining, where laws and organizations have been created for the protection of bystanders. agricultural bystanders have remained unprotected and have had to face the consequent injury and death outcomes. As public health professionals considering these risks, it is necessary that we work to develop more intervention studies and continue to propose suggestive guidelines for child safety in these environments so as to challenge family traditions and possibly spark public policies that will give further protection to this population (C) 2010 National Safety Council and Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved
