Science Informatics Showcase

    Computer scientists, information scientists, informatics experts and others all have different definitions of information architecture. It’s computer programming to some, user interface design to others, and maybe information hierarchies and graphical representations, or some combination of these and other information-distilling tasks for yet others. Focusing on the pre computer-era definition of IA—finding the best way to summarize something at a very high level in a way that lends clarity and insight—nSCI volunteers are working on developing a compendium of the best science-related IA ideas and practices today. What happens when you take a body of knowledge and attempt to organize it differently? Send your ideas to ia@nationalscience.org. The eventual goal of this project is to publish a resource on the nSCI website and also in e-book format for distribution to scientists, press and policymakers around world.
