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.

A Framework for Knowledge Sharing and Interoperability in Agricultural Research for Development


In an ideal world all data would he produced using open formats and would be linked directly to other related data on the web. This would give the possibility for service providers to set up information systems by mixing and matching data from different distributed repositories. A scenario like this is no science fiction. Nevertheless most data (of all kinds) resides in database and repository silos, and efforts to create one stop access to distributed data lack functionalities. robustness or sustainability. The CIARD initiative is working to make agricultural research information publicly available and accessible to all, by acting on both those issues. Among its actions are advocating and promoting open access. improving applicability and enabling effective use of data and information in agricultural research and innovation. In this paper we present the CIARD initiative and concentrate on FAO's contribution to it. We present the Linked Data approach. the vocabulary editor VocBench. the domain specific tagger AgroTagger and the RING registry of services and tools.
