Purpose/Background: This symposium will provide researchers with a host of Web 2.0 tools that facilitate interactivity and collaboration among researchers. Conventional methods of collaboration with researchers have changed dramatically with the introduction of the Internet. Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the US Department of Defense, created ARPANET to allow researchers to network and share files. With the advancement of information and communication networks, the next era introduced the notion of research collaboratory, a center without walls, to allow researchers to share and collaborate in virtual environments. Collaboratory tools were built on social software principles. As the world wide web appeared, a new breed of social software was created. Now with the advent of the Web 2.0, researchers have access to user-friendly tools that can create virtual spaces to interact, collaborate, and disseminate research findings. Approach: Web 2.0 is a movement from a passive information dissemination platform to a web that is more interactive, customizable, social, and media-intensive. Web 2.0 shifts to a platform in which content is created, shared, remixed, repurposed, and passed along. It builds upon the concept of "the wisdom of crowds" and allows people to connect with each other to boost their knowledge and their ability to learn. In the research arena, it allows researchers to connect with each other around common research ideas and collaborate using a host of new tools. The purpose of this symposium is to describe these new tools, discuss the advantages and disadvantages and promote the development of future collaborations among WIN researchers. Applications: In this symposium, several researchers from the College of Nursing at the University of Colorado Denver will present a specific Web 2.0 tool and how it is being used to foster collaboration and networking. These Web 2.0 tools are shaping new and creative methods for researchers in the future to collaborate and interact in virtual environments that transcend geographic and time barriers. The overview will provide an introduction to the concept of social networking and their use in helping researchers to find each other based on shared research interests. Researchers with shared interest use these networks to seek collaborations, share data, and harness the power of collective wisdom. The remaining presentations will elaborate how social writing, social bookmarking, and data visualization tools are now part of a researcher's toolkit. Each researcher will discuss the advantages, comparisons to conventional research tools and provide advice for their use. At the end of the symposium, the goal is to facilitate a discussion on how WIN researchers can participate in the Research 2.0 era.
