Technological changes in information and communication technologies are having a massive impact on the ways that social scientists access, conduct and communicate research: we now work with huge quantities of digital data, make use of multimedia, and have the ability to communicate across space quickly and in different modes.

In this talk, Thompson will discuss the changing needs of the social scientist, particularly the need for publishers to help in storing and giving access to research resources, and also to sustain virtual networks for information sharing and knowledge construction.
