The changing space of research: Web 2.0 and the integration of research and writing environments
Abstract Web 2.0 challenges the artificial compartmWeb 2.0 challenges the artificial compartmentalization of research and writing that often characterizes instruction in composition classes. In Web 2.0, writing and researching activities are increasingly integrated both spatially and conceptually. This article contends that, with this integration, Web 2.0 technologies showcase how research and writing together participate in knowledge production. Through analyzing specific technologies that incorporate Web 2.0 features, including Wikipedia, JSTOR, ARTstor, and del.icio.us, this article argues that including Web 2.0 technologies in composition courses as objects of analysis and as writing and researching resources offers a means to bridge the gap between students' online proficiencies and academic writing tasks. proficiencies and academic writing tasks.

Comments this article argues that including Web 2.0 technologies in composition courses as objects of analysis and as writing and researching resources offers a means to bridge the gap between students’ online proficiencies and academic writing tasks.
Conclusion the more “scholarly” spaces might borrow fthe more “scholarly” spaces might borrow from the “non-scholarly” spaces to encourage novice researchers to apply their online proficiencies and experiences to academic work. JSTOR and ARTstor, for example, could adopt some of del.icio.us's features to permit users to tag individual texts for future searching. In addition to allowing users to create their own subset of texts, they could allow users to categorize those texts in ways to enhance future searching—both for individual researchers and for users more generally. JSTOR and ARTstor might also adopt some of Wikipedia's functionality. Though archival holdings need not be (re)writeable as they are in Wikipedia, each archived text could have an associated discussion page where users comment on, share ideas about, and offer suggestions for a particular image or article.estions for a particular image or article.
