The panel will open with a short overview of recent research by each participant (7-10 minutes each -- see descriptions below) to frame discussion. Audience discussion will be organized by a set of key issues of particular interest to information scientists, such the dissemination of knowledge, data sharing, collaborative practices, and research policy and funding.
Key issues for discussion:
1. What are the similarities and distinctions between e-Research in the U.S. and the U.K.?
2. How much, and in what forms, are information science scholars collaborating between the U.S., U.K., E.U., and other countries?
3. What role do (and should) information scientists play in the shift towards large, online, collaborative research infrastructures that host data, connections to remote research instruments, software tools, workflows, publications, and a host of other resources?
4. What roles do institutions such as universities, libraries, disciplinary-based societies, and private enterprise play in e-Research?
5. What roles do institutions and individuals play in sharing and curation of research data?
