Abstract: In this paper we outline a framework for managing information quality (IQ) in an e-Science context. In contrast to previous approaches that take a very abstract view of IQ properties, we allow scientists to define the quality characteristics that are of importance to them in their particular domain. For example, " accuracy " may be defined in terms of the conformance of experimental data to a particular standard. User-scientists specify their IQ preferences against a formal ontology, so that the definitions are machinemanipulable, allowing the environment to classify and organise domain-specific quality characteristics within an overall quality management framework. As an illustration of our approach, we present an example Web service that computes IQ annotations for experiment datasets in transcriptomics.
