Web 2.0 sites in Scholarly Publishing
October 15 to October 15, 2006
We have recently launched two new Web sites focusing more on
Web 2.0 technologies.
An editorial about this site can he found here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ijsu.2006.07.002
Have any other journals lauched such Web 2.0 sites? If so, please send me a link. What are the WAME community’s views on how we can utilise such technology in scholarly publishing?
I look forward to your thoughts.
