World Wide Research

Paul Wouters

The MIT Press

A complex institutional and intellectual arrangement shapes the agenda of publicly funded scholarly and scientific research. Given the potential of e-Research to alter the landscape dramatically of academic work, its role in the setting of research agendas should also be explored. This chapter considers how e-Research affects researchers' questions and discusses funding and resources for e-Research as well as the new skills required of new generations of researchers. It also looks at new forms of social accountability for researchers.

Keywords:   e-Research, research agendas, funding, skills, researchers, social accountability
