“Two free-to-use Web 2.0 tools offer scholars the opportunity for greater collaboration. James Everest reports
As a growing number of academics seek to manage their research papers online, new Web 2.0 tools are emerging to lend a hand.
Two products that are developing a following are Mendeley and Zotero, both of which are free to use and offer fresh opportunities for collaboration.
Mendeley allows scholars to index and organise their research papers online. They can be uploaded or imported into users’ “libraries” from online repositories such as Google Scholar, PubMed Central or those offered by big publishers.”
