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.

Profile of family farms and cost control in South-Central Region of Parana


Business management requires an adequate information base. The cost control is an indispensable source of information because the costs directly influence the results. The management in agriculture, particularly in family farm agriculture is characterized by a large shortage of formal decision-making and use of information technology. The decisions in this sector are often based solely on experience and intuition. The aim of this paper is to examine the cost controls in family agriculture of the South-Central Region of Parana and seek relationships that may exist between the socio-economic profiles of the properties and the control of different costs. Statistical analysis is based on a sample of 235 (two hundred and thirty-five) properties for which information was raised by means of a questionnaire. Cultures widely prevalent in the region are tobacco, corn, beans and soybeans. The results show that family farm agriculture of the South-Central Region of Parana is very homogeneous, the cost controls are weak and the variables that make up the socio-economic profile of the properties are not differentiating factors of the cost controls adopted.
