Launch of the Scholarship 2.0 Blog


"There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come."
Victor Hugo

Histoire d'un Crime:
Déposition d'un Témoin
Paris: Calmann Lévy, 1887-1888.

Scholarship 2.0 is devoted to describing and documenting the forms, facets, and features of alternative Web-based scholarly publishing practices. The variety of old and new metrics available for assessing the impact, significance, and value of Web-based scholarship is of particular interest.

Scholarship 2.0 was formally established on Thanksgiving 2007.

Good cause, congratulations! You are right to identify the importance of the issue of how to evaluate these new means of publication and works therein, and the issue in not just one of rating candidates for promotion/tenure/selection/retention but also a matter of who to give grants to for research; hence
billions are at stake. The Jan 08 issue of New Directions in Evaluation is about this, i.e., the evaluation of research for funding; for those who are interested.
