Reviews and Testimonials

Researchers in a wide range of academic disciplines present studies on specific aspects of academic practices enabled by the digital age and leading to the configuration of Research 2.0 as the emergence of research in transition. They cover contextual scenarios of Research 2.0, international perspectives, emergent scholarly practices, and potential innovation in researcher development. Among specific topics are scholars in the digital age: social scholarship and practices, the visibility of scholarly research and changing research communication practices: a case study from Namibia, self-organizing the scholarly practices: how PhD researchers use Web 2.0 and social media, research 2.0: the contribution of content curation and academic conferences, and digital identity of researchers 2.0: the case of their personal learning network.
