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.

Farmers' access to internet information: Pathways, interests and cost


Set in six rural communities in southern Hebei Province of China, the present study focuses on rural farmers' access to, interests about and management of internet information. With the perspective of farmers, this empirical study attempts to understand the potential, effects of information technology on agricultural information system and to capture its development prospect as well. The research findings indicate that 1) how the surveyed rural residents gain access to internet information and to what extent the internet as media is acceptable to farmers are dependent on such factors as individual education background, age, family income, as well as outside interventions; 2) innovative information technology plays a significant role in improving local livelihoods and accelerating local development; 3) poverty reduction through information technology has laid positive but limited impact towards rural residents' understanding, learning and utilization of the internet.
