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. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Ontology Design Parameters for Aligning Agri-Informatics with the Semantic Web


In recent years there have been many efforts in the development of bio-ontologies, where the applied life sciences can see the benefits reaped from, the hurdles observed with, such early-adopter efforts. With the plethora of resources, where should on start developing one's own domain ontology, what resources are available for reuse to speed up its development, for which purposes can the ontology be developed? We group inputs that determine effectiveness of ontology development and use into four types of parameters: purpose, ontology reuse, ways of ontology learning, and the language and reasoning services. We illustrate this for the agriculture domain by building upon experiences gained in previous and current projects.
