“e-Science is about global collaboration in key areas of science and the next generation of infrastructure that will enable it.”  John Taylor (former Director General of Research Council, UK)

Generating, processing, disseminating, and archiving scientific and scholarly knowledge during the research process is changing in a fundamental way. Science enhanced by new digital working opportunities is described as e-Science – “enhanced science.” Science, in this context, is understood not only to cover the natural sciences but also any other discipline. e-Science requires innovative and sustainable information infrastructures.

eSciDoc is a platform for web-based scientific work and has been developed in collaboration with the Max Planck Society (MPG). eSciDoc supports the entire scientific work process, from the idea to experiments, analysis, data aggregation and publication – not only in common text form.

eSciDoc consists of a discipline-independent infrastructure and the services that are built on it (eSciDoc-Solutions). The entire eSciDoc software is available as Open Source under the Common Development and Distribution License (CCDL).

Innovative information and communication technologies allow for creating and editing growing numbers of digital objects which are exchanged, collaboratively edited, and evaluated in intelligently networked environments. Under the name of KnowEsis, FIZ Karlsruhe develops and offers e-Science solutions for scientists, based on the eSciDoc platform for web-based scientific work.
