Here's also a summary from 2007:

Yolanda Gil, Ewa Deelman, Mark H. Ellisman, Thomas Fahringer, Geoffrey
Fox, Dennis Gannon, Carole A. Goble, Miron Livny, Luc Moreau, Jim
Myers: Examining the Challenges of Scientific Workflows. IEEE Computer
40(12): 24-32 (2007)

You can probably find a free PDF from Google Scholar.  I'm sure
Geoffrey Fox has a PDF up on his publication page.
