Challenges for Those Constructing a Science of Information as an Evolving Unique Discipline
Published: 06 August 2010 by MDPI in The 4th International Conference on the Foundations of Information Science session FIS 2010
Abstract: This paper suggests those interested in a Science of Information establish an entirely new academic and scientific discipline to be titled "Science of Information". This new discipline should be established as a meta-discipline because the new discipline will include the theoretical work of and complement the other disciplines. It should exist equally with traditional disciplines such as physical, social science, arts, and humanities. It should not compete with or replace other disciplines. It should stand alongside them and assist them, as well as conduct comparisons and consolidations amongst the disciplines regarding information theories, methodologies, practices, by adding new perspectives, resources and developments.
