This event marks the publication of 'World Wide Research' by MIT Press, with a keynote on directions in digital social research and a panel discussion on the role of advanced Internet and Web technologies for research practices across disciplines

The book ‘World Wide Research‘ (eds William Dutton, Paul Jeffreys) has just been published by MIT Press. It explores how advances in ICTs are transforming the way scholarly research is conducted across all disciplines, offering a comprehensive and accessible view of the use of these new approaches – ‘e-research’ – and their ethical, legal and institutional implications.

This book launch event includes a keynote by Professor David de Roure (National Strategic Director for e-Social Science) on directions in digital social research, and a panel discussion on the significance of research on the role of advanced Internet and Web technologies for the conduct and outcome of research practices across the disciplines. Where has work in this area made the greatest strides, and what areas are in the greatest need of further research?
