  • Vollmer, Michael; Scott, Ryan G.; Musuvathi, Madanlal; Newton, Ryan R. (Sheridan Communications on behalf of ACM. Proceedings of 22nd annual ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practice of Parallel Programming (PPoPP17), 2017-02)
    A core, but often neglected, aspect of a programming language design is its memory (consistency) model. Sequential consistency~(SC) is the most intuitive memory model for programmers as it guarantees sequential composition ...
  • Hara, Noriko; Rosenbaum, Howard (The Information Society, 2008)
    One interesting problem arising from Kling and Iacono’s pioneering work on computerization movements (CMs) is the question of empirically determining a movement’s success or failure. This paper questions the question and ...
  • Hara, Noriko; Shachaf, Pnina; Hew, Khe Foon (Journal of the American Society of Information Science and Technology, 2010)
    This paper reports a cross‐cultural analysis of four Wikipedias in different languages and demonstrates their roles as communities of practice (CoPs). Prior research on CoPs and on the Wikipedia community often lacks cross ...
  • Hara, Noriko; Sanfilippo, Madelyn R. (Information, Communication & Society, 2016-02-08)
    Knowledge sharing online has flourished within organizations as well as open online communities due to the pervasiveness of Web 2.0 platforms. This paper builds on previous studies of social construction of knowledge online ...

  • Yu, P.; Wild, D.J. (Chemistry Central Ltd., 2012)
    Relating chemical features to bioactivities is critical in molecular design and is used extensively in the lead discovery and optimization process. A variety of techniques from statistics, data mining and machine learning ...
  • Hara, Noriko; Alsarhan, Hesham; Kilburn, John; Ynalvez, Marcus; Ynalvez, Ruby; Chen, Kuo-Hua (American Society for Information Science & Technology, 2010-10)
    In this paper we describe preliminary results of a three-year project that examines the enculturation of doctoral students in life science programs in Taiwan, Japan, and Singapore. The purpose of the study is to examine ...
  • Hara, Noriko; Huang, Bi-Yun (Annual Review of Information Science & Technology, 2011)
    The emergence of “e-movements” and new forms of “e-protest” and “e-activism” (Earl & Schussman, 2003) has signified the importance of the Internet as an organizational and mobilization vehicle for those engaged in social ...
  • Finlay, C.S; Sugimoto, C.R; Li, D; Russell, T.G (University of Chicago Press, 2012)

    The goal of the Human Microbiome Project (HMP) is to generate a comprehensive catalog of human-associated microorganisms including reference genomes representing the most common species. Toward this goal, the HMP has ...
  • Wu, Y.-W.; Rho, M.; Doak, T.G.; Ye, Y. (American Society for Microbiology, 2012)
    The NIH Human Microbiome Project (HMP) has produced several hundred metagenomic data sets, allowing studies of the many functional elements in human-associated microbial communities. Here, we survey the distribution of ...
