Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The use of information and communication technology in scientific research has
been hailed as the means to a new larger-scale, more efficient, and cost-
effective science. But although scientists increasingly use computers in their
work and institutions have made massive investments in technology, we still have
little idea how computing affects the way scientists work and the kind of
knowledge they produce. In Systematics as Cyberscience, Christine Hine explores
these questions by examining the developing use of information and communication
technology in one discipline, systematics (which focuses on the classification
and naming of organisms and exploration of evolutionary relationships). Her
sociological study of the ways that biologists working in this field have
engaged with new technology is an account of how one of the oldest branches of
science transformed itself into one of the newest and became a cyberscience.
