|Abstract:||e-Social science involves collaboration between computer scientists and social scientists to develop Grid technology to address substantive social science research in innovative ways. This paper addresses the following question: what are the relationships between academic knowledge and the practice of research when developing new computer-supported research tools for e-social science? The paper draws on a UK e-social science pilot demonstrator project that addresses three main dimensions of developing e-social science: (1) identification of new social research foci, (2) adapting research processes, and (3) developing tools. The integration of these dimensions shows that research-driven and user-led development of computer-mediated research using the Grid produces relevant and innovative tools for the social sciences.|
