Health Web Science

This monograph presents Health Web Science as a sub-discipline of Web Science that, while being concerned with the Web’s impact on health and wellbeing, also examines the impact of the Web’s health-related uses on the design, structure, and evolution of the Web itself. Understanding and appreciating the overlapping, yet divergent disciplinary orientation of Health Web Science compared to related research domains, motivates specific research efforts around better utilization of, innovation on, and communication over and within the Web.

Open Data and Charities

The Web Science Trust was asked by the Nominet Trust to author a report on the impact of Open Data on Charities.

This report, written by Wendy Hall, Nigel Shadbolt, Thanassis Tiropanis, Kieron O’Hara and Tim Davies, reviews open data as it relates to the charitable sector. It draws on long experience of developing open data in research and government, as well as early work exploring open data with charities and third-sector organisations. It defines open data, describes the background context of a knowledge economy, and outlines key opportunities and challenges of open data in the charity sector.
