Next-gen PhDs fail to find Web 2.0's 'on-switch'

"It is counter–intuitive in the extreme, but young researchers are failing to make use of so–called 'emergent technology', such as Web 2.0 tools, to support their work.

A three–year study by the British Library, Researchers of Tomorrow, is tracking the research behaviour of doctoral students born between 1982 and 1994 – dubbed 'Generation Y'. ...

Interim results, released to Times Higher Education, show that only a small proportion of those surveyed are using technology such as virtual–research environments, social bookmarking, data and text mining, wikis, blogs and RSS–feed alerts in their work. This contrasts with the fact that many respondents professed to finding technological tools valuable."
