This paper aims to explore how the principles of a well-known Web 2.0 service, the worldÂ¿s largest social music service "Last.fm" (www.last.fm), can be applied to research, which potential it could have in the world of research (e.g. an open and interdisciplinary database, usage-based reputation metrics, and collaborative filtering) and which challenges such a model would face in academia. A real-world application of these principles, "Mendeley" (www.mendeley.com), will be demoed at the IEEE e-Science Conference 2008.
Date of Conference: 7-12 Dec. 2008
