New Book about Scientific Collaboration on the Internet (Ian Foster Contributing)

Scientific Collaboration on the Internet

0262151200-medium I'm looking forward to receiving my copy of Scientific Collaboration on the Internet. I have an article in it on lessons learned from the NEESgrid project (an earlier version is here, I think it's a good read, especially between the lines), but the other articles are probably far more interesting:

The Contemporary Collaboratory Vision

  • E-Science, Cyberinfrastructure, and Scholarly Communication -- Tony Hey and Anne Trefethen
  • Cyberscience: The Age of Digitized Collaboration? -- Michael Nentwich

Perspectives on Distributed, Collaborative Science

  • From Shared Databases to Communities of Practice: A Taxonomy of Collaboratories -- Nathan Bos, Ann Zimmerman, Judith S. Olson, Jude Yew, Jason Yerkie, Erik Dahl, Daniel Cooney and Gary M. Olson
  • A Theory of Remote Scientific Collaboration -- Judith S. Olson, Eric C. Hofer, Nathan Bos, Ann Zimmerman, Gary M. Olson, Daniel Cooney and Ixchel Faniel
  • Collaborative Research across Disciplinary and Organizational Boundaries -- Jonathon N. Cummings and Sara Kiesler

Physical Sciences

  • A National User Facility That Fits on Your Desk: The Evolution of Collaboratories at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory -- James D. Myers
  • The National Virtual Observatory -- Mark S. Ackerman, Eric C. Hofer and Robert J. Hanisch
  • High-Energy Physics: The Large Hadron Collider Collaborations -- Eric C. Hofer, Shawn McKee, Jeremy P. Birnholtz and Paul Avery
  • The Upper Atmospheric Research Collaboratory and the Space Physics and Aeronomy Research Collaboratory -- Gary M. Olson and Timothy L. Killeen; Assisted by Thomas A. Finholt
  • Evaluation of a Scientific Collaboratory System: Investigating Utility before Deployment -- Diane H. Sonnenwald, Mary C. Whitton and Kelly L. Maglaughlin

Biological and Health Sciences

  • The National Institute of General Medical Sciences Glue Grant Program -- Michael E. Rogers and James Onken
  • The Biomedical Informatics Research Network -- Judith S. Olson, Mark Ellisman, Mark James, Jeffrey S. Grethe and Mary Puetz
  • Three Distributed Biomedical Research Centers -- Stephanie D. Teasley, Titus Schleyer, Libby Hemphill and Eric Cook
  • Motivation to Contribute to Collaboratories: A Public Goods Approach -- Nathan Bos

Earth and Environmental Sciences

  • Ecology Transformed: The National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis and the Changing Patterns of Ecological Research -- Edward J. Hackett, John N. Parker, David Conz, Diana Rhoten and Andrew Parker
  • The Evolution of Collaboration in Ecology: Lessons from the U.S. Long-Term Ecological Research Program -- William K. Michener and Robert B. Waide
