SAID-HUNG, Elias. The Use of Web 2.0 for Collaboration in the Virtual Scenarios of Scientific Dissemination of the Atlas Project. Investig. bibl [online]. 2012, vol.26, n.56, pp.137-157. ISSN 2448-8321.

This article analyzes 110 links related to the Atlas Project's main website, in order to study the general features that characterize the use of Web 2.0 in the virtual scenarios of scientific dissemination, within this case study. The results suggest, among other things, that the dissemination of science is characterized by a low level of visibility on the Internet, an open access policy broadly appropriate by the scientific community, but with low implementation of multi-format communication models through Web 2.0, in which highly specialized contents are exposed, aimed to the presentation of reports and results, presenting low appropriation of tools for interaction and personalization of information. It is concluded that the presence of a virtual scenario discussed here presents limitations in relation to the usability of the Web 2.0 as it limits the exercise of this function to experts belonging to the same scientific collective connected with the case study.

Keywords : Dissemination; Science; Atlas; Virtual Scenarios; Web 2.0.
