I’ve posted a new article on Web 2.0 and scholarly communication

This was originally intended for Learned Publishing but they found it too journalistic for their style, and it also overlapped with other articles already in the pipeline. It’s possible I may expand the last section, We built it, why won’t they come?, into an opinion piece, but in the meantime I hope it may be a useful overview of developments for some people.

Topics covered include:

  • What is Web 2.0?
  • Web 1.0 and scholarly communication
  • Web 2.0 and Open Access
  • Blogs
  • Social bookmarking
  • Social networking
  • Podcasts
  • Wikis
  • Data
  • Peer review
  • Reasons for lack of uptake to date
