In “Towards Best Practices in Collaborative Online Knowledge Production,” Susan Brown illuminates the affordances of web technologies and standards for contemporary, large-scale and multiplayer scholarly production, possible in part because of the Web 2.0 evolution. In this chapter she draws explicitly from her experience leading The Orlando Project and the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory. Brown suggests that in order to create truly “superior scholarship,” (48) we must design collaborative practices with data management, preservation, standardization, efficacy, and community engagement in mind.
