2008 IEEE Fourth International Conference on eScience (2008)
Dec. 7, 2008 to Dec. 12, 2008
As network-enabled scholarship produces huge quantities of formal and informal research outputs in a variety of formats and varying levels of access, it is "enhanced" science that will facilitate the discovery, selection, and analysis of information that are a necessary part of the scientific research cycle particularly among interdisciplinary research communities. The National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN) has developed a web service, InterNano, to support the information needs of the nanomanufacturing community within this network-enabled research environment. Based on the clearinghouse concept, InterNano brings together heterogeneous resources and research outputs with networking and computational tools to enable discovery, facilitate selection of information, and encourage collaboration. With seventeen content features and services, InterNano's goal is not just to make information work within this community more efficient, but also to enable researchers to act on their discoveries within the same virtual framework.
