FOCUS OF THIS BOOK
With advancements of information and communication technologies, physical boundaries of local social networks have evaporated. Online social networks replicate and enhance the benefits of traditional social networks across time and space and accelerate and globalize the process. The collaboration
efforts among researchers in this environment are called e-research collaboration.
E-Research Collaboration can be defined as: the use of information communication technologies which
enable the collaboration among individuals/group engaged in a research project. These technologies
can range from email to enterprise packages and online software services.
While we have seen the unprecedented growth of social networking tools such as MySpace, Facebook and Linkedin, these were primarily designed for social purposes. It is only in the last year that we
have begun to see the emergence of research-based social networking tools. These tools, for example,
MyNetResearch and 2Collab, can facilitate collaborative environments to orchestrate interaction
within networks of researchers, partners, and customers to boost creativity and innovation.
E-Research collaboration technologies can supply seamless connectivity to allow work anywhere and anytime. The mechanisms of e-research collaboration are an emergent phenomenon. We invite researchers to submit analytical, case-study, conceptual, experiential ethnographic or narrative papers to enhance our understanding of the frameworks, practices and tools and techniques in e-research collaboration.
