A research cybrarium is an electronic space for creating, synthesizing, and disseminating research knowledge across a community. In contrast to current electronic libraries and web-based research networks, a cybrarium engages the contributor of knowledge in an active dialog in which it identifies relationships to already incorporated knowledge, provides feedback based on content, synthesizes knowledge and involves other researchers who have stakes in the subject. A cybrarium is different from current web-based journals because of its capability to synthesize knowledge in a dynamic, self-organizing way that cumulates a body of validated knowledge.
