VP-Cross in maart

De afgelopen maand heeft vooral in het teken gestaan van correcties en verbetering in gebruiksgemak van de verschillende componenten. Bij softwareontwikkeling geldt de bekende 80/20-regel: 80% van de functionaliteit wordt in 20% van de tijd gerealiseerd, maar die laatste 20% kost 80% van de tijd. Wij hebben daar nu ook last van. Bij testen komen [...]

Ethical issues of e-research from a health perspective

The growing potential of health informatics and the use of linked datasets offer opportunities for a new wave of health research which can track large numbers of individuals or populations across different datasets. However, such study designs exhibit substantial differences from the models of clinical trials which have informed previous narratives on research ethics. The [...]

Rich Internet Publications (RIP)

Today Leen Breure is talking about Rich Internet Publications: super enhanced research publications. A new way of bringing research material to an on line published state. They’re lightweight, cheap and easy to create. They tie together text, tools (research instruments) and non linear reading of research results. The advantage over traditional (journal) publications is that [...]

Ethical issues in digital data archiving and sharing

The development of a manifesto on ethics of e-research assumes that e-research differs from other research approaches, therefore requiring its own set of ethical guidelines. In considering the distinctiveness of e-research, it is helpful to differentiate between e-research as tool or method and e-research as site or ‘field’. Our own discussion focuses on e-research as [...]

The ‘obvious’ answer was [...]
