4 4 IOD is integrative Science Studies is integrative too…

5 5 Infrastructure studies is a research area that simultaneously addresses the technical, social and organizational aspects of the development, usage, and maintenance of infrastructures. Infrastructure Studies Infrastructure is a broad category referring to pervasive enabling resources e.g. computational services, help desks, and data repositories (eg Data Zoos). What we understand by infrastructure has consequences for how we design the support environments for scientific research.

6 6 Social and organizational comparison of three scientific cyberinfrastructure (CI) projects with different interoperability strategies Funded CI Project for the geo-sciences Ontologies Established Project for ecological sciences Metadata Standard Nascent Information infrastructure for the ocean sciences based at SIO Learning Environment Activity Comparative Interoperability project NSF/Human and Social dynamics ( ) interoperability.ucsd.edu

7 7 Challenge of cyberinfrastructure building: Access to data and tools to use data across different informational settings. How is data shared across distributed organizations and heterogeneous disciplines? Background: -> Need for an tying together in a single plan a technical vision, a deep understanding of communities’ scientific goals, and the design of a supporting organization

8 8 Methods Ethnography -interviews -document analysis -participant observation Cross Case Analysis (Grounded Theory) Institutional Analysis -organization of funding -ties to institutions of science -ties to institutions of Computer Science & Information Technology
