Ullmann, Thomas Daniel; Wild, Fridolin; Scott, Peter; Duval, Erik; Vandeputte, Bram; Parra, Gonzalo and Reinhardt, Wolfgang (2010). Components of a Research 2.0 infrastructure. In: 5th European Conference on Technology-Enhanced Learning (ECTEL'10), 28 Sep - 1 Oct 2010, Barcelona, Spain.



In this paper, we investigate the components of a Research 2.0 infrastructure. We propose building blocks and their concrete implementation to leverage Research 2.0 practice and technologies in our field, including a publication feed format for exchanging publication data, a RESTful API to retrieve publication and Web 2.0 data, and a publisher suit for refining and aggregating data. We illustrate the use of this infrastructure with Research 2.0 application examples ranging from a Mash-Up environment, a mobile and multitouch application, thereby demonstrating the strength of this infrastructure.
