  4. 4. SCIENCE 2.0 In the words of Waldrop (2008), science 2.0 relates to “ new practices of scientists who post raw experimental results, nascent theories, claims of discovery and draft papers on the Web for others to see and comment on”. Underwood et al. (2009) postulate even further that science 2.0 offers more potential than mere efficiency optimization (through improved workflows and better sharing possibilities): participation in research can be broadened beyond existing scientific communities. A science 2.0 is about crowd-sourcing of ideas and the refinement of knowledge in an open debate. Shneiderman [4] adds another aspect and sees in Science 2.0 “ new technologies [that] continue to reorder whole disciplines”, as “increased collaboration [is stimulated] through these socio-technical systems”. Gillet et al. [1] see in Science 2.0 a concept that federates a variety of communication channels to ease internal communication within an existing scientific network and beyond.
