Abstract:
The growth of scientific and technical information, distribution of software for collaborative data processing, expansion of communications capabilities has led some members of the scientific community to the assumptions about the formation of the "new science." In the English literature to denote of the ongoing changes, the terms «e-science» and «Science 2.0». Can specify the following characteristics of modern science, which express implementing IT-tools in educational practice:1) the data is collected with the help of devices or generated by modeling device; 2) data processed by the program; 3) information and knowledge stored in the computer; 3) researchers analyzed databases and files, using data management. Though these characteristics are determined largely by modern science, but an increasing penetration of ICT in modern historical science makes knowledge of the past is also sensitive to the manifestation of these problems. In fact, computer programs that collect and data processing, may contain errors or use incorrect procedures. Often the relevant software and hardware testing and debugging passes in the course of tool complex. Secondly, there is the problem of mutual understanding between scientists and IT-specialists develop software. Finally, automated data management systems are functioning indifferent to the question of the correctness of the results of research. In connection with the foregoing substantially actualized problems of reliability of research results and the validity of knowledge. For historical knowledge into effect "ideology" saturation latter problem also arises correct presentation of historical material can exist to which general availability. The article presents the philosophical and methodological possibilities of application of modern ICT for historical research, analyzes examples of incorrect implementation of the historical Internet resources.
