Line 1: Information on Science, Technology and Innovation in Health

It is dedicated to the investigation of policies, processes and products related to the production, 
organization, access, dissemination, diffusion and use of information and knowledge in the field 
of public health. From a theoretical-methodological approach, the study of:

- Production, regulation and new dynamic research regimes of open scientific research in health,
 science, citizen science and other emerging movements, analysis of collaborative networks, 
science, gender and equity in mobility.

- Infrastructures in the library field, including strategies, health solutions, data and virtual environments, 
standards languages, sharing, FAIR principles and use of Information and Communication Technologies.

- Evaluation in science and innovation (S,T&I) in health, particularly, metric studies, methodologies, 
tools and technology tools, measurement sources, measurement sources, among others.

- Health science, technology and innovation policies, including information policies, open access 
and openness policies, research funding and related data policies.

- Information, science, health and society, particularly data competence, information competence, 
health competence, scientific communication and dissemination and community engagement in health.

- Analysis, organization and synthesis of scientific information, recognition of scientific literature, translation 
of knowledge, implementation research and other support methodologies for E-based health, monitoring 
and information mining in health S,T&I.
