This chapter looks at the institutional infrastructures for global research networks in the public sector. Drawing on the results of a survey and case studies of e-science projects in the United Kingdom, it argues that “soft” institutional infrastructures can facilitate the formation and conduct of collaborative research initiatives in the public sector, such as those which aim to be truly global in scope. The chapter also examines ownership of research data or processes, citing the example of medical images, and the role of authorship in protecting the integrity of scientific collaboration. Finally, it highlights the legal issues that are related to the authorship and copyright of intellectual property developed in many e-Research projects.

Keywords:   public sector, e-Research, e-science, global research networks, institutional infrastructures, ownership, authorship, scientific collaboration, copyright, intellectual property
