Web 2.0 becomes Research 2.0 in 2collab, a new social bookmarking site aimed at the research community. 2collab is a free service from Elsevier, initiated in collaboration with Scopus and ScienceDirect. Like other social bookmarking tools (such as, 2collab allows users to store bookmarks on a platform that is open to other users.

2collab was designed for the research and librarian community to provide an aggregated tool that allows users connect with others in their fields, share information with their groups, discover new research material, and collaborate without email. Users can bookmark any item of interest, such as Web sites, articles, references, news, blogs, and video clips and share with a group - whether it's a research group, colleagues, friends, or students. Members of groups can evaluate these resources (by rating bookmarks, tagging, and adding comments) or add their own bookmarks. Members can start discussions and debates by commenting and rating the linked resources. Groups can be private (with invited people only) or public (open to any user). Users can browse and search through 2collab to find interesting new topics, research ideas, or new people.

Internet Explorer users can add 2collab buttons to their browser toolbar. Instructions are available at

Links to 2collab are now available in both Scopus and ScienceDirect. In Scopus, look for the "Bookmark" button (with the 2collab logo) above the article title. In ScienceDirect look for the "Add to 2collab" button in the right sidebar.
