GlobusWorld 2018 coincided with an important file transfer milestone: 400 petabytes of data moved between Globus endpoints via the service since 2010. But many of the talks, tutorials, and user stories focused instead on what comes after data reaches its destination. Whether it’s enabling the discovery of promising new materials, helping coordinate multi-site research projects in neuroscience and molecular biology, or facilitating campus- and country-wide storage networks, Globus is increasingly a critical behind-the-scenes partner in some of today’s most exciting science.

The application of scientific techniques to the process of science itself -- a field known as the “science of science” or SciSci -- reveals patterns that can be used to fuel more efficient and faster discoveries. In a new paper for Science, a team of authors including Knowledge Lab director and CI Senior Fellow James Evans reviews recent SciSci achievements and discusses how researchers, funding agencies, universities, and other entities can apply the findings to drive innovation and progress.
