Study of Multi-Institutional Collaborations Phase I oral history interviews: high-energy physics, 1989-1991.
Project staff for the first phase (high-energy physics): Joan Warnow-Blewett, project director, Spencer Weart, associate project director, Frederik Nebeker and Joel Genuth, project historians, and Lynn Maloney, project archivist. Oral history interviews conducted as part of the study now form part of the Niels Bohr Library's collections. The interviews have been organized into four series (described separately): 1. Selected Experiments, 2. Probes, 3. Subcontracting, and 4. Perspective Interviews.
A documentation research project to study the complex issues facing the historical documentation of multi-institutional collaborations in physics and allied sciences. The project aimed to identify patterns of collaboration, records creation, and use; define the documentation problems; field test possible solutions to these problems; and recommend future actions to secure adequate documentation and facilitate future study. Phase I focused on collaborative research in high-energy physics (completed 1992), Phase II addressed collaborative research in space science and geophysics (completed 1995), and Phase III focused on four disciplinary areas of ground-based astronomy, materials science, heavy-ion physics, and medical physics, and a category named computer-mediated collaborations. A final report focuses on comparisons of the various fields studied as well as broad questions of documentation policy and practice.
