Collaborative Scholarly Writing By/In Digital Communities 


I am greatly interested in Collaborative Scholarly Writing by/in Digital Communities.

[BTW: Digital Communities Can Be Online Communities / Online Social Networks / Virtual Communities of Practice / Etc.] 

A Premier Example of What I Seek Is The _Braided Learning_ E-Journal Found Within MirandaNet, A Virtual Community of Practice

"The _Braided Learning_ E-Journal provides an environment for MirandaNet fellows and others ***to develop work openly and collaboratively, sharing resources and allowing comments in the form of peer reviews and structured discussions***."

Examples of Formal As Well As Informal Collaborative Scholarly Writing (CSW) Are Of Interest.

BTW-1: I am particularly interested in CSW by undergraduate / graduate students in any Higher Education Institution, preferably within the context of a Digital Community/Environment[PARTICULARLY SCIENCE/TECHNOLOGY]

I Strongly Recommend A Visit to MirandaNet, As It Is An Outstanding Example Of A Virtual Community of Practice 

[Thanks, Dr John P. Cuthell, Research and Implementation Director, MirandaNet Academy]

BTW-2: Examples Of Other Outstanding, MultiFaceted Virtual Communities Of Practice / Online Communities / Online Social Networks / Etc. Are Also Of Great Interest [PARTICULARLY SCIENCE/TECHNOLOGY]
