Worrall, Adam, Marty, Paul F., Roberts, Jessica, Burnett, Kathleen, Burnett, Gary, Hinnant, Charles C., Kazmer, Michelle M., Stvilia, Besiki and Wu, Shuheng (2012): Observations of the lifecycles and information worlds of collaborative scientific teams at a national science lab. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 423-425.

Team-based scientific collaborations play a key role in the discovery and distribution of scientific knowledge. In order to determine the social and organizational factors that help support a scientific team's successful transition from short-term experiments to long-term programs of ongoing scientific research, this study used observations of teams conducting experiments at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory to determine what teams actually do during these experiments. As part of a larger, ongoing research project using mixed methods, our findings describe the scientific culture of hybrid teams at work, and demonstrate how multiple, overlapping, and nested lifecycles and information worlds play an important role in promoting successful and continuing scientific collaboration. The boundaries between worlds and efforts to span them are particularly important, requiring greater attention. Our future research will develop a model including these factors and add further practical and theoretical implications to those we have already identified.

Hinnant, Charles C., Stvilia, Besiki, Wu, Shuheng, Worrall, Adam, Burnett, Kathleen, Burnett, Gary, Kazmer, Michelle M. and Marty, Paul F. (2012): Data curation in scientific teams: an exploratory study of condensed matter physics at a national science lab. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 498-500.

The advent of big science has brought a dramatic increase in the amount of data generated as part of scientific investigation. The ability to capture and prepare such data for reuse has brought about an increased interest in data curation practices within scientific fields and venues such as national laboratories. This study employs semi-structured interviews with key scientists at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory to explore data management, curation, and sharing practices within a condensed matter physics community. Findings indicate that condensed matter physics is a highly varied field. The field's work practices and reward structures may impede the development and implementation of highly formalized curation policies focused on sharing data within the broader community. This study is an extension of a larger mixed-methods study to examine the life-cycles of virtual teams and will serve as a foundation for a larger survey of the lab's user community.

Baeg, Jung Hoon, Burnett, Kathleen, Bonnici, Laurie and Subramaniam, Mega M. (2011): Navigating the confluence of streams in the development of disciplinary identity, 2004-2009. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 643-644.

This poster presents preliminary research on the relationship between the iSchools movement and the development of disciplinary identity between 2004 and 2009, the period during which the iSchools organization was officially founded. The goal is to explore whether it is possible to identify trends that emerge from articles written by iSchool faculty and graduate students (i-authors) that appeared in five journals with high impact factor rankings in the areas of Information Science and Library Science (LIS) and Computer Science and Information Systems (CIS) as indexed in the 2009 Journal Citation Reports. These two areas were selected because they represent the disciplinary homes of the majority of the iSchools membership. Descriptive statistics including frequency tables were used to identify trends in the development of disciplinary identity in the study of information. The results suggest that iSchool authors may be selecting publication venues based on the geographic proximity of the journal rather than journal impact rankings, subject matter, or style of work affinities. The researchers plan to conduct author cocitation analysis to further examine the influence of these factors. Graphs and charts are used to present the findings in the poster itself, and additional references will be provided.

Burnett, Kathleen and Mckinley, E. Graham (1998): Modelling Information Seeking. In Interacting with Computers, 10 (3) pp. 285-302.

This article proposes three inter-related models to aid in the understanding of the complex and constructive process of contemporary information seeking: (1) postmodern model of identity; (2) rhizomorphic model of information contexts; and (3) hypertextual model of technology interaction. The nature of the information seeking problem is redefined as an individual's negotiation of identity through the exploration of the interaction of private ignorance and public knowledge. The three models are introduced, and their association with the information seeking problem clarified. The incorporation of foci on interactive processes, borrowed from communication studies, into the current proposed approach to modelling information seeking is justified. Finally, suggestions are offered for further research based on this approach.
