The eScience domain brings together scientists, experts, and engineers to enterprise comprehensive, large-scale data and computational cyberinfrastructures. The objective is to advance knowledge discovery in the sciences and establish effective channels of communication between the various disciplines. Software, data, workflows, technical reports, and publications are often the modes of this communication. However, currently all these modes of communication are disconnected from each other.
E-publishing is changing the nature of scientific communication through digital publication repositories and libraries. But the larger and more pertinent issue is connecting these yet static digital e-publications repositories to large amounts of computation, data, derived data, and extracted information.
