Réseaux sociaux pour les chercheurs - A lire ou à relire. Les réseaux sociaux pour chercheurs: une illusion? Un récent débat autour du libre accès aux données et publications scientifiques et d’un réseau social pour chercheurs  m’a poussé à me poser une question que j’ai déjà effleurée ici ou là.
Des réseaux sociaux spécifiques aux chercheurs ont-ils une quelconque utilité pour les chercheurs? Qu’apportent-ils de plus que les outils sociaux génériques comme twitter, facebook ou des logiciels avec couche social comme Google Drive, par exemple? Contexte du débat En faisant une simple recherche sur un moteur de recherche, en anglais comme en français, on trouve assez facilement des références sur le sujet. À THATCamp Paris 2012, une session avait été organisée sur le sujet. Can ResearchGate really be the Facebook of science? — European technology news. Ijad Madisch, the CEO and co-founder of Berlin startup ResearchGate, likes to work with hard evidence.
Perhaps it’s no surprise for the Harvard-trained virologist, who traded in a promising medical research career to launch the social network for scientists. But still, in a world where the impact of social networks is usually measured by how many news headlines they can generate, he prefers success stories that have a more direct impact.
Take the example of Rafael Luque, a chemistry professor at the University of Cordoba in Spain. Scientific social networks are the future of science. “@ccess to knowledge is a fundamental human right “ Peter Murray-Rust Since ancient times, information has always been passed on orally or on paper.
In terms of information technology, information on paper is compartmentalized. Finding information is often synonymous with finding the right book or publication. Books mostly give a more or less complete picture, and any links to other works are often just there for reference purposes. This is fundamentally different from information contained in the internet, which is hyperlinked by nature.

What Is A Scientific Social Network? 6 Thriving and Inspiring Examples.
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. Rather, we should broaden our idea of the ‘social network’ to include any online community of scientists, not just those which are similar to Facebook. The unlimited scholarly publication. 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 By referencing the datasets hosted on figshare (Refs. 10 & 11), the content that can be addressed in a single paper becomes unlimited, whilst also helping aid the discovery of the research. As pointed out by GigaScience on google+, 'this follows DCC best practice guidelines, and shows journals are starting to adopt and get used to data-citation.' Recently, we have noticed users questioning what they can and cannot upload and make citable through figshare. How Do You Cite a Tweet in an Academic Paper? - Alexis Madrigal - Technology.

Hattem, PhD Student, Yale University Source Readex Report From the Article. Mark Drapeau: Social Networks for Scientists Won't Work. A "Facebook for Scientists"? It may sound silly, or redundant, but it's becoming more of a reality. Maybe. A new startup based in Germany named ResearchGate has already convinced roughly 1.4 million researchers to become members and begin sharing. “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). I view any use of the phrase “Facebook for scientists” with great suspicion. At least Mendeley (the social and bibliographic management site) has the imagination to call themselves the Last.FM for science. Brian Krueger, at LabSpaces, suggested why none of these sites have become dominant in the way that FaceBook has: ResearchGate’s groups and Job listings appear to be relatively active, Nature Network has its blogs and forum, and LabSpaces has the news and Blogs.
