Science Node has ceased publication. This site will no longer be accessible on June 30, 2022.


Science Node is a free online publication, developed in collaboration with organizations in the US and Europe. Our team writes for experts and non-experts alike, exploring the real-world impact of advanced computing and networks.

Why Science Node? The name emphasizes our connectedness. With every story, Science Node illustrates how science improves our everyday lives. And it serves as an international connection and redistribution point — a point of communication, intersection, and convergence.

Our mission is to inform the global research community (including everyday, business, and technical people) about research breakthroughs, the resources that make such breakthroughs possible, and new advances that will make possible the breakthroughs of tomorrow. Coverage spans several broad categories:

  • Advanced computing: High-performance computing (supercomputing), cloud computing, grid computing, novel computing, cluster computing, etc.
  • Research networks: Connections that foster global science and research, and the international collaborations that fuel innovation and discovery
  • Big data: Analysis, capture, curation, storage, management, archiving, transfer, visualization, etc. -- extending to the Internet of Things
  • Tech trends: New and emerging tech -- in other words, research and development aimed at discovering the next big thing (or using existing tools/methods in new ways)
  • Community building: Women in tech, diversity and expansion efforts, citizen science, collaborations and partnerships, etc.

We're also committed to featuring a wide variety of disciplines, ranging from science and engineering to the arts and humanities.

Our history

Most recently, Science Node was known as International Science Grid This Week (iSGTW). When our reporting extended well beyond grid computing, it was time for a new tech-neutral name -- and an updated look and feel. (iSGTW itself went international in November 2006, having first emerged in April 2005 as Science Grid This Week.)

The US National Science Foundation supported sustaining and strengthening iSGTW (award 1242759), including the initial transition to Science Node. In Europe, iSGTW received funding from CERN and the European Commission. iSGTW also received in-kind support from the Open Science Grid.
