Beyond (simple) reading: strategies, discoveries, and collaborations

Vetle Torvik, Allen Renear, Neil Smalheiser and Cathy Marshall

(Submission #54)


Scientists increasingly use the scientific literature in ways that go beyond traditional reading. This panel explores three ways, other than traditional reading, that the computer can help us exploit scientific articles: the strategic reading of large numbers of articles, the discovery of implicit assertions, and the identification of collaboration patterns. A respondent will speculate on where these trends will take us, and what sort of outfits should be packed for the trip.
