Abstract:Researchers will model the lifecycles of virtual multidisciplinary scientific teams using the facilities of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, an interdisciplinary scientific center with distributed facilities in Tallahassee, Florida; Gainesville, Florida; and Los Alamos, New Mexico. The model will be built from data collected through descriptive multiple-case studies, grounded in an analysis of social and organizational factors related to the concepts of the theory of information worlds: social norms, social types, information values, and information behaviors (Burnett & Jaeger, 2008; Jaeger & Burnett, in press). The researchers hypothesize that when the norms and practices of multiple external worlds represented by team members are integrated into the internal norms and practices of the team itself, the outcomes of the project will more likely be successful, and team members will be more likely to work together virtually again.
