team diversity and the impact of scientific publications: Evidence from physics research at a national science lab. ABSTRACT In the second half of the twentieth century, scientific research in physics, chemistry, and engineering began to focus on the use of large government funded laboratories. This shift toward so‐called big science also brought about a(More)
The production of scientific knowledge has evolved from a process of inquiry largely based on the activities of individual scientists to one grounded in the collaborative efforts of specialized research teams. This shift brings to light a new question: how the composition of scientific teams impacts their production of knowledge. This study employs data(More)
The two traditional methods of Metadata Development as describe in the article are bibliographic control approach and the data management approach. These two approaches have evolved over time due to the rise of digital information stored in cyberspace and help facilitate metadata standards which include the identification, location, retrieval, manipulation(More)
This paper reports the results of a pilot for a study that will investigate the scope of work practices performed by the information technology workforce (ITWF) and utilize the understanding developed from this investigation to inform the implementation of educational curricula that meet the needs of industry and society in general. To accurately define(More)
The advent of big science has brought a dramatic increase in the amount of data generated as part of scientific investigation. The ability to capture and prepare such data for reuse has brought about an increased interest in data curation practices within scientific fields and venues such as national laboratories. This study employs semi-structured(More)
This article reports the results of research to determine whether the iSchools project, an undertaking of twenty-two institutional caucus members, represents a deliberate split from the discipline of LIS as previously constructed, a conflict in approach to traditional LIS education, or an ingestion of traditional disciplinary content into a new iField. A(More)
To be effective and at the same time sustainable, a community data curation model has to be aligned with the community's current work organization: practices and activities; divisions of labor; data and collaborative relationships; and the community's value structure, norms, and conventions for data, quality assessment, and data sharing.
