CIRSS - Research Areas Collections and Curation e-Science Digital Humanities Socio-technical Data Analytics

The activities of the iSchool Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship (CIRSS) are aimed at advancing how scientists and scholars work with digital information and new technologies to support the dynamic interplay among information, people, and information systems. Current research emphases include the curation of research data, socio-technical data analytics, scientific data and knowledge management, and large-scale digital research collections. CIRSS also helps lead the development and management of related iSchool academic programs, the Specialization in Data Curation and the Socio-technical Data Analytics (SODA) specialization.
