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)
In recent years Internet has become a valuable resource for every type of information. Information available on the Net is very vast and easy to access. But it is very difficult to retrieve the right information. The fact is that there is a lot of noise in retrieval. The reason is due to the huge number of heterogeneous resources in a distributed(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)
This article analyzes dimensions of interaction that contribute to student satisfaction in Web-supported courses. Researchers examined chat logs and discussion board postings for eight graduate courses in fall 2000 at the Florida State University School of Information Studies, and conducted focus group interviews in spring 2001 with 14 online and local(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.
