Range of Options for Further Research Session Chair: John King, University of Michigan Based on the results obtained in response to the preceding discussions, define a range of options that can be used by the sponsors of the project, as well as other similar organizations, to obtain and promote a better understanding of the computer-mediated scientific knowledge discovery processes and mechanisms for openly available data and information online across the scientific domains. The objective of defining these options is to improve the activities of the sponsors (and other similar 184 THE FUTURE OF SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE DISCOVERY IN OPEN NETWORKED ENVIRONMENTS
