Science Information Lifecycle

Understanding the lifecycle of scientific information will help you search effectively and efficiently.

  • It all begins with an idea that is later turned into a hypothesis and studied
  • Next the pre-print and conference stage is the result of talking to colleagues and drafting the lab results
  • The research will then be submitted for a scholarly peer reviewed journal to be reviewed by experts in the field
  • Following publication if the article is important in its field it may be included in a review article. A review article covers many research articles to provide an overview of new discoveries and research trends
  • Finally, usually after several years, the information may become common knowledge and be seen in sources like textbooks, encyclopedias, and handbooks
