New Report: Information in the Physical Sciences

OeSS researchers, along with colleagues at LSE, UCL, and KNAW (Netherlands), were primary authors on a new report from the Research Information Network (RIN) on how researchers in the physical sciences find, use and share information. The report, Collaborative Yet Independent: Information Practices in the Physical Sciences presents seven case studies within the physical sciences to understand how computational approaches to information are enabling changes in practice.

The project was supported by RIN, the Institute of Physics, and the Royal Astronomical Society.
