Abstract

It is unclear if ana how colaboratories nave enhanced distributed scientific collaboration. Furthermore, little is known in the way of design strategies to support such collaboration. Based on a survey and follow-up interviews with CiteSeer users, we present four novel implications for designing the CiteSeer collaboratory. First, visualize query-based social networks to identity scholarly communities of interest. Second, provide online collaborative tool support for upstream stages of scientific collaboration. Third, support activity awareness for staying cognizant of online scientific activities. Fourth, use notification systems to convey scientific activity awareness.
