Use and relevance of web 2.0 for researchers | Research Information Network

A new study from RIN in the UK looks fascinating for us who are interested in adoption of Web 2.0 tools by library researchers:

Use and relevance of web 2.0 for researchers | Research Information Network.

From their website:

The study […] explores whether and how web 2.0 tools are changing researchers’ behaviour in significant ways, and what implications this might have for researchers, institutions, librarians, information professionals and funders. We sought evidence on whether web 2.0 tools are:

  • making data easier to share, verify and re-use, or otherwise facilitating more open scientific practices
  • changing discovery techniques or enhancing the accessibility of research information
  • changing researchers publication and dissemination behaviour, (for example, due to the ease of publishing work-in-progress and grey literature), and
  • changing practices around communicating research findings (for example through opportunities for iterative processes of feedback, pre-publishing, or post-publication peer review)
