  • Our study presents a web‐based annotation tool, AnnotationOne, developed to facilitate the easier creation and global sharing of annotations. Our aim is to create conversations around scholarly content benefitting everyone and forging new connections between scholars. Using this tool, users can read and make globally accessible annotations shared with a large scale of users. User studies were conducted to investigate the utility of this universal annotations system. Subjects completed tasks including making annotations, initial reading with annotations and re‐reading with annotations on our prototype system. Both observations and interviews were conducted to explore whether and how this annotation tool would be beneficial for scholarly communication. Moreover, we also collected subjects' suggestions to improve this tool's usability.
