science progresses as knowledge is shared
Science Progresses asKnowledge is Shared

If the sharing of knowledge is accelerated, discovery is accelerated

Profound implications for all of us in the information business!

A Key Piece of Science Discovery

Information feeds discovery

the spread of knowledge can be measured modeled
The Spread of KnowledgeCan Be Measured & Modeled

The Spread of Knowledge about Feynman Diagrams

Discovery path of US and UK authors

From: The Power of a Good Idea: quantitative modeling of the spread of ideas from epidemiological models, Luis M. A. Bettencourt, Ariel Cintron-Arias, Carlos Castillo-Chavez; David Kaiser, May 2005

the spread of knowledge can be accelerated
The Spread of KnowledgeCan Be Accelerated

Knowledge is contagious.

Increasing the contact rate means researchers “catch” an idea faster.

International partnership kicks off global science gateway

In January 2007, Dr. Raymond Orbach, DOE Under Secretary for Science, and Lynne Brindley, Chief Executive of the British Library signed a Statement of Intent to partner in the development of a searchable global science gateway.

slide7

WorldWideScience.org was launched in June 2007

Now searches over 40 portals from more than 50 countries

slide8

A federation of the leading science portals sponsored by the governments and national institutions of over 50 countries

  • A quantity of science (more than 200 million pages from every inhabited continent)
  • A breakthrough in content enabled by breakthrough technology

WorldWideScience.org & Federated Search Technology

Many popular search engines rely on crawler based technology

Surface Web

Deep Web databases

Federated search drills down to the deep Web where scientific databases reside
