The Science Commons Project
Science Commons, a project of Creative Commons, has three interlocking initiatives designed to accelerate the research cycle. These include making scientific research “re-useful”, enabling “one-click” access to research materials, and integrating fragmented information sources. Together, these intiatives form the building blocks of a new collaborative infrastructure to make scientific discovery easier by design. Science Commons Vice-President John Wilbanks talks about the copyright and technical challenges of contemplating a true knowledge browser. The full-length interview with John Wilbanks is also available.
