Using scientific data produced by others: Trust practices shaping infrastructure, or infrastructure shaping trust practices?
2015-12-04
Abstract:Scientists in many domains increasingly need to use data produced by others in their own work. They may be using data produced by collaborators, or they may be reusing data produced by scientists for other purposes. Frequently, the potential...

An update on the Transforming Taxonomic Interfaces Initiative
2015-10-28
Abstract:In this ERRT we will give an overview of our recent work and share ideas about “semantic engineering,” including what happens when what we study has significant components of both regular data collection and data construction.The...

Sex-bias in biomedical research: a bibliometric perspective
2015-10-23
Abstract: Models of human disease have traditionally been biased towards the male body. Here, we perform a retrospective study of factors that may have contributed to (reducing) this bias across a variety of biomedical topics and study types in the U...

Abstract:The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) enables computational access to the HathiTrust corpus, a digital library of over 14.2 million books and other materials digitized by the Google Books project and other mass-digitization efforts. The HTRC...

Large scale data analysis: Simpson's paradox, data integrity, and reproducibility.
2015-10-14
Abstract:We consider factors that can give rise to unreliable or unstable outcomes in empirical research. For example, seemingly small differences in data preparation, consideration of outliers and missing values, or treatment of "data errors&qu...

Informational Challenges for the new Center for Biomolecular Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Data Processing
2015-10-02
Abstract.  The process of computing an atomic-resolution protein structure from NMR data is complex.  For this purpose, NMR spectroscopists utilize dozens of software tools operating on primary and derived data of various semantic types.&nb...

Are Collections Sets?
