In the fast developing world of scholarly communication it is good to take
a step back and look at the patterns and processes of innovation in this
field. To this end, we have selected 101 innovations (in the form of tools
& sites) and graphically displayed them by year and also according to 6
phases of the research workflow: collection of data & literature, analysis,
writing, publishing & archiving, outreach and assessment. This overview
facilitates discussion on processes of innovation, disruption, diffusion,
consolidation, competition and success, but also of failure and stagnation,

phases. Also, based on the graphical overview we present a juxtaposition of
typical traditional, innovative and experimental workflows
