With improved access to an increasingly mobile web 2.0 online environment, large numbers of users are creating content using a variety of tools, changing the ways in which members of communities interact, socialise, and collaborate with each other. The user centered, distributed nature of Web 2.0 technologies has implications for academic researchers as well as the general public, yet little is understood regarding how Web 2.0 and e-Research methodologies are changing the information environment, and how they are actively used.

The aim of this workshop is to highlight issues of use and users of web 2.0 and e-Research technologies. We aim to identify and discuss the main research areas that are becoming increasingly pertinent, while highlighting emergent issues regarding the use and users of web 2.0 technologies in both the academic and non-academic domains.
