Is shorthand for the set of tools and technologies required to support collaborative, networked science. (Hey, 2006). It describes the collaboration among computationally-intensive science disciplines that create immense data sets which are captured, transported, stored, organized, accessed, mined, visualized, and interpreted in order to extract knowledge (SouttReview 2010). NCBI's Human Genome Resources website and the Peptide Atlas are examples of on-going eScience projects managed in the United States.
Is data-driven, collaborative research that uses digital technology in various science fields, such as medicine, physics, and chemistry, as well as various disciplines within the social sciences. The International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility is one example of a portal that provides digital tools used in eResearch.
eScience and eResearch pair the needs of the Researcher with the skills of the Medical Librarian, who may serve as:
-Data research librarian
-Data management plan consultant
-Non-scientific personnel for Institutional Review Boards
