Abstract

This paper discusses the interrelationship between e-Science and CSCW in terms of key substantive, methodological and conceptual innovations made in both fields. In so doing, we hope to draw out the existing relationship between CSCW and e-Science research, and to map out some key future challenges where the two areas of research may become more closely aligned. In considering what may be required to draw the two more closely together, the paper focuses primarily on investigations that have been undertaken in two dedicated initiatives into e-Science, along with the key issues emerging from these studies.

Notes

  1. e-Science Pilot Project Integrative Biology (IB), funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)

  2. For example, in the UK, a National Programme, e-Social Science, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, was set up in an attempt to harness the technologies developed under the e-Science Programme to enhance social scientific research (Halfpenny and Procter 2010).

  3. For the purposes of clarity, in this paper we will use the term e-Science for general reference to a range of related terms covering similar capabilities.

  4. A group at NIH produced a report entitled Collaboration and Team Science: A Field Guide (Bennett et al. 2010), and a web site rich with resources is at teamscience.nih.gov. Falk-Krzesinski et al. (2011) conducted a concept-mapping study to attempt to give some structure to this emerging field.

  5. The infrastructure supporting Web 2.0 tools (cloud computing) seem strikingly similar to grid computing projects (see Pierce et al. 2006), but are quite different in terms of the funding, focus and user engagement
