Discusses issues with metadata, standards and semantics affecting e-Research use of data.

Access to datasets is often hindered by a lack of agreement within research communities on data and metadata standards:

"people do not use controlled vocabularies, and ontology, that also causes difficulties sharing data, because meanings of the terms used [...] are different from individual to individual or even the same individual on different trials, they may use the same word to mean different things. That was the biggest problem we identified." (researcher)

There are often problem associated with defining an appropriate scope and level of detail. These kinds of problems also often play out in discipline specific ways:

"in terms of dealing with relatively complex data and relatively complex analytical techniques, at least complex to the perspective of social scientists, there is this basic tension between describing things clearly and from an introductory level and having enough space to go into the more details, detailed output." (researcher)

Enablers

Disciplinary initiatives are required to for the development of common agreed vocabularies and ontologies. Developing these is often a long-term project that requires the establishment suitable structures spanning institutional boundaries and defined by common interests of researchers working in a particular research area.

"[The] solution [...]was the development of common data element and the use of agreed controlled vocabularies. That is something that’s done by some research communities, for instance, gene expression research community formed a society, the MGM societyto agree what meta-data to collect [...] the US National Cancer Institutehas developed a source that developing to be as comprehensible as possible in anything to do with cancer research [...] So I have been involved in forming an international society to deal with anti-body therapy again to try and develop data standards and models for use in describing research data can be shared effectively, which is a much more complex thing because there are multiple parameters [...]to deal with." (researcher)

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think

Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
