RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 199458454 LA English T1 Scientific collaboration on the Internet A1 Olson, Gary M., Zimmerman, Ann,, Bos, Nathan., PB MIT Press PP Cambridge, Mass. YR 2008 SN 9780262151207 0262151200 AB "The projects described range from the development of a national virtual observatory for astronomical research to a National Institutes of Health funding program for major multilaboratory medical research; from the deployment of a cyberinfrastructure to connect experts in earthquake engineering to partnerships between developed and developing countries in AIDS research. The chapter authors speak frankly about, the problems these projects encountered as well as the successes they achieved, the book strikes a useful balance between presenting the real stories of collaborations and developing a scientific approach to conceiving, designing, implementing, and evaluating such projects. It points to a future of scientific collaborations that build successfully on aspects from multiple disciplines."--Jacket.
