One recent report has identified some modern challenges facing physical science researchers. The report was commissioned by the Research Information Network (RIN), the Institute of Physics (IOP), IOP Publishing (IOPP), and the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS).

This interesting information was found on Knowledgespeak in their article, “Report identifies contemporary challenges faced by physical science researchers.” The research indicates that entities such as research councils, publishing houses, and libraries should step up and help physical scientists gather, manage, and share research information. Apparently, the needs vary among the various research groups due to their approach and challenges.

It is nice to see some value given to the researchers, librarians, and scientists attempting to gather data, as well as the call for some help in their endeavors.
