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.

In Search of the Genetic War: World War Two, agrarian co-operation and Green Revolution in the agriculture of Costa Rica


The purpose of this paper is to analyse the relationship between World War II and the beginning of agricultural modernisation in Costa Rica. To this end, we propose to study this relationship from a semantic and contextual perspective. Within the semantic dimension, we review the importance of war semantics in the mythical discourse of revolution, considering that, in it, war was assumed as a metaphorical rather than a historical element. From the contextual perspective, we analyse the link between World War II and the development of agricultural programmes coordinated by the United States of America in Mexico and Costa Rica. The study is based on the principle that, in the Costa Rican case, this programme laid the groundwork for the future development of the green revolution through programmes of agricultural extension, pest control and chemicalization. These, in turn, paved the way for the widespread application of technology in the 60s and 70s. Different sources have been reviewed to support such conclusions, including annual reports of U.S. foundations, annual proceedings of Costa Rican public institutions, archives, interviews and contemporary agricultural magazines.
