The Changing Space of Research: Web 2.0 and the Integration of Research and Writing Environments is a 2010 journal article by J.P. Purdy and published in Computers and Composition.

[edit] Abstract

Web 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. {All} rights reserved Elsevier.
