What is Science 2.0 ?
Science 2.0 sub-summarizes novel concepts in science that became possible through the Internet and Web 2.0. Those novel online concepts include for instance open access publications, wiki-like publications, blogs, social networks and micro-blogs which will certainly have an impact on science and how scientists will communicate in the future.
New concepts appear constantly and it is hard to keep up with the pace of new developments regarding Science 2.0. Nevertheless, we would like to give you a quick overview of concepts that we felt are interesting for our researchers. If you have more concepts you would like to see on our link list or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us: D. Sitek
