What Constitutes a Scientific Database?

John L. Pfaltz
2007 International Conference on Scientific and Statistical Database Management  
We propose that a scientific database should be inherently different from, say a business database.  ...  We claim that such a structure can be incrementally created and that the hypotheses formed will adapt to new data.  ...  Introduction What constitutes a "scientific" database? For example, it is in any way different from a "business" database? To a large extent it depends on what one regards as "science".  ...

Genomic sequence databases

Michael S. Waterman
1990 Genomics  
It is probably important to realize at the outset that these databases will never completely satisfy a very large percentage of the user community.  ...  The range of interests within biology itself suggests the difficulty of constructing a database that will satisfy all the potential demands on it.  ...  What I think should happen in a well-designed world is that the sequencing efforts manage their own raw data, passing sequence to central DNA databases when a given length and quality have been attained  ...

Experiment Databases [chapter]

Joaquin Vanschoren, Hendrik Blockeel
2010 Inductive Databases and Constraint-Based Data Mining  
Experiment databases are similar to regular inductive databases, but operate at a higher level of abstraction.  ...  We also describe the (principled) design of a pilot experiment database, and illustrate its use.  ...  In a regular IDB, this would not make sense, as the model itself is what the user is interested in.  ...

Data Mining Citation Databases

Peter Z. Revesz
2014 Proceedings of the 19th International Database Engineering & Applications Symposium on - IDEAS '15  
Based on the new citation index, a new algorithm that identifies emerging scientific leaders is also proposed.  ...  A new citations index measure that combines total citations and hindex values is proposed.  ...  There are many theories about what constitutes a scientific leader. Some older scientists have established a reputation based on a single highly cited publication.  ...
