    Abstract

    There is growing interest in the use of ICT in the domains of science and research. Little
    of that interest is currently focused on the systems aspects of those domains, but instead
    looks piecemeal at the way they may make use of particular ICT tools. Two important
    opportunities exist here for the information systems discipline; firstly, to analyse it as
    a human activity system to see how ICT can be systematically employed in its activities,
    and secondly, to view the deployment and adoption in society of knowledge created by
    research as a matter of information systems inter-operation. This paper looks at how the
    foundation ideas of IS might be mobilised to improve the vital domain of research.
