Cover image of the RIN reportAstronomers, particle physicists, chemists and other scientists all handle their information in different ways, according to a new report from the Research Information Network (RIN). The study, entitled "Collaborative yet independent: Information practices in the physical sciences", is backed by the RAS and the Institute of Physics. A set of seven case studies - including astronomers involved in the citizen science Zooniverse project and hunting gamma ray bursts - have been used to examine the way that researchers in the physical sciences access, use and share information.
