Professor Christine Borgman will be participating in a fellowship at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics for October 2018 with a joint appointment at the Harvard Data Science Initiative. During her CfA fellowship, Dr. Borgman plans to advance a decade-long study of astronomy data practices to ask questions about the durability and fragility of these infrastructures and the invisible work required to sustain access to data, tools, instruments, publications, documentation, and other infrastructure components. Lessons learned are expected to advance data stewardship in astronomy and other scientific domains.
A conversation with Professor Christine Borgman and Ph.D. Candidate, Irene Pasquetto about their Cochrane Colloquium presentation “How and why do scientists reuse others’ data to produce new knowledge? Background, Foreground, and Beyond.” Within this podacast they discuss different types of data reuse, and the social, political, and technological challenges facing open science.
