This chapter focuses on the diversity across the sciences and humanities, and on how e-Research might reconfigure the boundaries within research landscapes. It also examines four issues that are particularly significant for evolving agendas: Funding levels for research, changing skill sets of the scientific labor force, the increasing importance of the digital in many social domains, and the push for greater scientific accountability. After providing an overview of the components of research technologies and e-Research, the chapter discusses the institutionalization and interdisciplinarity of e-Research, the relation between computer science and e-Research, and collaboration in the humanities and social sciences.

Keywords:   sciences, humanities, e-Research, funding, accountability, collaboration, social sciences, interdisciplinarity, computer science, labor force
