Virtual Research Environments: From Portals to Science by Robert N. Allan

By Robert N. Allan

digital learn Environments examines making info and conversation applied sciences (ICT) usable by way of researchers operating to unravel “grand problem” difficulties in lots of disciplines from social technology to particle physics. it truly is pushed via examine the authors have performed to guage researchers’ necessities in utilizing details providers through net portals and in adapting collaborative studying instruments to satisfy their extra different wishes, quite in a multidisciplinary study.

This is the inducement for what the authors have helped become the united kingdom digital study Environments (VRE) programme. They illustrate generics with particular cases of experiences conducted evaluating portal applied sciences and comparing usability. This paintings, and additional improvement of collaboration and Webbased learn instruments has been performed with overseas collaborators, particularly utilizing the Sakai framework and different contemporary Java-language dependent portal programming frameworks and linked standards.

The e-book is split right into a variety of chapters delivering motivation, illustrations, comparisons of know-how and instruments, useful information regarding deployment and use and reviews on concerns and problems in making sure uptake of e-Science and Grid expertise by means of already working towards researchers.

  • Definition of digital study Environments and e-Research with analogies to digital studying Environments
  • Compilation approximately how e-Research is performed with regards to paintings in united kingdom and united states on portals and providers for collaborative studying, shared info providers and repositories and their software for multi-disciplinary research
  • Description of technology Gateways to dispensed study assets (Grid computing, facts and net 2.0 kind collaboration instruments) and their relevance to the grand demanding situations dealing with study requiring huge teams
