Era-Net ANIHWA - Animal Health and Welfare

Bibliometric study on animal health and welfare of livestock in Europe (2005-2014)

A web application dedicated to the results of the bibliometric analysis

This work has been led, within the work package 2, by the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) with the collaboration of the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) and the Italian Ministry of Health (MH-DVPHNSF).

Objectives of the study

  • To build a unique database containing the scientific publications concerning both animal health (all diseases in livestock animals) and animal welfare
  • To map the collaborations between European countries and research organisations, and to identify the major publication topics of those collaborations

Elaboration of an accurate bibliographic database in animal health and welfare

  • Establishing thematic terminologies in infectious and non-infectious diseases, animal welfare and animal species groups (Ruminants, Horses, Pigs, Rabbits, Poultry, Fishes, Bees)
  • Extraction of bibliographic records from Web of Science ® database (primary articles or reviews in English language)
  • Implementation of supplementary filters (inclusive and exclusive) to discard irrelevant neighbouring topics
  • Enrichment of the database with additional fields (pathogens groups, diseases groups, welfare components, animal species groups) and standardised organisation names

Final relevant and enriched database: 48 103 references published from 2005 to 2014 in Europe

Bibliometric analysis

Bibliometrics refers to a statistical procedure, useful to describe and highlight trends or relations.

  • Thematical analysis
  • Geographical mapping
  • Collaboration network by country and organisation (i.e. scientific openness)

Web application to interactively navigate in the results

Based on an intuitive navigation process, the application offers the opportunity to explore results.
