“@ccess to knowledge is a fundamental human right “ Peter Murray-Rust
par Frédéric Clavert [ Ceci est un "guest post" de Frédéric Clavert. Historien, il a soutenu sa thèse sur Hjalmar Schacht, financier et diplomate 1930-1950 en 2006 et l’a publiée chez PIE-PeterLang (Bruxelles) en 2009.
A recent article from the Huffington Post states that social networks for scientists won’t work because there is no incentive from a career perspective. The piece focuses on ResearchGate and takes a stab at the Economist’s article about the community. Here at Comprendia, we’ve never advocated that Facebook should be recreated for scientists, as there are 700,000+ life science graduates in the US already using the application,* and they are likely already connected there to lab mates and colleagues.
As we have previously noted , traditional journals often have limits on the number of files that you can put into the paper, even as supplemental information.The use of figshare to break open the restraints of current traditional publishing models has been demonstrated this week in a publication in PLoS ONE: Roberts SB, Hauser L, Seeb LW, Seeb JE (2012) Development of Genomic Resources for Pacific Herring through Targeted Transcriptome Pyrosequencing. PLoS ONE 7(2): e30908. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0030908

A "Facebook for Scientists"?
Soon after Nature Network launched in 2007 it was being touted as the “Facebook for scientists”. Other sites that had been around longer, such as FriendFeed and LabSpaces , occasionally got that moniker too (and indeed Facebook bought out FriendFeed later on).
Following on from the lists of academic tweeters published earlier this month, we have put together a short guide to using Twitter in university research, teaching, and impact activities, available to download as a PDF or view on Issuu.
Pourquoi certaines disciplines sont-elles plus actives sur les réseaux sociaux que d’autres ? Quelles sont les domaines de recherche dans lesquels le besoin d’adhérer à des réseaux sociaux scientifiques s’exprime le plus ? Quels sont les outils les plus utiles à la recherche scientifique ?
