The vision of the 'Grid' first emerged as a solution to the highly specialised computing infrastructure requirements of particle physics. The past five years, however, have seen the Grid's potential recognised by the wider scientific research community and the emergence of new forms of research practice now encapsulated in the notion of 'e-Science'. Now, members of the social science research community are beginning to explore how they can use the Grid and to explore the prospects for 'e-Social Science'.
