Notes

Abstract: Social Informatics and Knowledge Sciences represent two research domains with selective common areas of interest. This paper begins with the perspective of Social Informatics and considers the challenges it faces in a dynamic and rapidly evolving digital world. The research team sets out to consider how knowledge sciences theories and methods might apply to the original and current Social Informatics challenges. The authors propose a comprehensive and inclusive conceptual model for social informatics that may be used to map relevant research and literature in other domains, particularly those beyond information science. The authors also discuss the need for a fully elaborated and extensible classification scheme and vocabulary for social informatics to support automated discovery of relevant research. The research suggests there are areas of common interests between the fields of social informatics and knowledge sciences, and highlights potential areas of future collaboration.
