SUPPORTING SCIENTIFIC COLLABORATION 
THROUGH  CYBERINFRASTRUCTURE AND E-SCIENCE

Guest Editors: Charlotte P. Lee, David Ribes, Matthew J. Bietz , Marina
Jirotka, and Helena Karasti 

Scientific collaboration using cyberinfrastructure (CI), or e-Science, is
forward facing. e-Science projects aim to support the collaboration of
research communities, whether by facilitating distanced collaboration or
sharing data and computational resources. The most ambitious e-Science
projects are creating entirely novel scientific fields, anticipating and
actively cultivating new scientific communities and practices. Such
endeavors present original challenges to researchers in CSCW fields:
questions of large-scale technology development, of supporting communities
in addition to groups, and of long-term sustainability.

Cyberinfrastructure and e-Science projects are partially information
technology research ventures, but they are also forms of applied sociology,
e.g., building bridges across heterogeneous disciplinary traditions and
scientific methods. Careful attention must be paid to the full range of
participant's activities as they go about their work. How to establish
reliable, accessible and appropriate information infrastructure is a
challenge for contemporary CSCW. 

For this special issue on computer supported scientific collaboration, we
welcome research on topics such as, but not limited to: case studies or
comparative analyses of cyberinfrastructure & e-Science development or use;
novel applications for large-scale scientific collaboration; and practices
for supporting heterogeneous, distributed, or long-term collaborations. We
seek empirically grounded studies with a sensibility for theoretical
contributions to CSCW and closely related fields.

ABOUT THE JOURNAL: Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) disseminates
innovative research results and provides an interdisciplinary forum for the
debate and exchange of ideas concerning theoretical, practical, technical,
and social issues in CSCW. Coverage ranges from ethnographic studies of
cooperative work to reports on the development of CSCW systems and their
technological foundations.
