Title:Wiki as a Platform - Turning Dissemination into Collaboration
Author(s):Evans, Craig S.
Subject(s):data sharing
information reuse
collaborative information systems
scholarly communications
Abstract:In research projects, data collection and dissemination are considered as two discrete and independent activities. The focus is on the research question, and not on how to best collect, present and subsequently share data. Although most US funding agencies now require that researchers data share, the tools available to operationalize this requirement are lacking. We propose show how the open source MediaWiki system can provides a lightweight, collaborative, and inexpensive tool to support new data sharing practices. This note serves to illustrate how interactive data collection and dissemination supported by a Wiki server can be used by scientists both during the project and for subsequent dissemination.
