Information Transfer and Collaboration in Science

This seminar examines the role of information in the production of scientific knowledge. Building on a foundation of classic readings in the history and sociology of science, the course will cover a range of contemporary research on scientific communication, collaboration, research practice, and informatics. The focus is on formal and informal information transfer and communication as a social phenomenon and implications for collaborative science and e-science. The course had been developed as part of the master's degree in bioinformatics and is also suited for doctoral students and advanced master's students interested in professional development as science and medical information specialists.
