    question:
    Is it possible to create folders for storing posted reference papers in a research hive?
    details:

    My co-authors and I would like to post the references papers we are citing in a research paper, so each of the co-authors will have easy access to our references without having to e-mail them to each other. We set up a research hive in AAA Commons. We would like to set up one folder for theory papers, another folder for methods papers, and additional folders as needed, so we can keep the reference papers organized by topic. Is this possible? Thanks.

      Hi, Anne,

      It isn't possible to add folders, but there are several ways we could make this work.  Perhaps the easiest is for us add tags to your hive so you can tag each post as "theory," "methods," etc.  Then, you and your colleagues just go to the "posts" page in your research hive, and filter by post type (reference paper) and then tag (theory, methods, etc.)

      And I think this is a great idea, so we can add those tags to the "template" that is used to create all research hives... so let me know if you like this idea, and then we can make it happen!

      Hi Julie,

      Yes, it would be great to have tags as a way to quickly identify the topic of each of the reference papers we store in our hive. Thank you for being so responsive. I appreciate all your work to make the Commons a useful online space.

      Hi, Anne,

      Just tell me which hive (ideally, if you send me the URL) and I'll add the tags!

      And thanks for the kind words - we all appreciate them!

      Hi Julie,

      The title of the hive is Scales Project and the URL appears below.
