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)

s of papers presented at the 2006 and 2008 iConferences. The course titles and course descriptions for master's level courses listed on the websites of the 14 iSchools in 2008, and those for the 14 randomly selected other schools were analyzed for word frequency and the rank order of the ten most frequent words in each list were compared as shown in Table(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)
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.
