Summary This report describes many of the new digital research tools for science and engineering. These tools have irreversibly revolutionized the way research is now and will be conducted. For the most part research communities are adapting by welcoming these changes as necessary improvements for fostering productivity, speed, efficiency, precision, collaboration, and creativity. This willingness to adapt is generally perceived as positive and progressive (Nissenbaum, 1998).
