28 Aug Social Network for Scientists
Scivee.tv has been launched â€“ an online social network where members of the scientific community can collaborate to generate and revise articles, create personal profiles, and publish their work online.
It’s been billed as a YouTube for scientist, but SciVee is about the free and widespread dissemination and comprehension of science. In other words, Open Access â€“ in BOAI terms, “â€¦journal articles should be disseminated as widely as possibleâ€¦”
SciVee is more than videos; it engages virtual discussions with authors, the creation of communities around specific articles and collaboration between scientists. All the presentations also include a link to the original published article and a list of the references and tags (keywords) based on NLM‘s MeSH.
