Academia.edu Emerging Tool for Scientific Research

Don’t miss the broadcast –”academia.edu and the Evolution
of Peer Review” interview of Richard Price.

Academia.edu is an emerging tool that will become
significant first in industries that can pay for specific
services.  I bet that if ACS does not move into this area,
it could be overtaken.

Very compelling “open source” direction with an
evolution of crowd and social reviews discussed.
It is trying to find more open ways of moving science
forward using:
  - instant distribution of results and conclusions
  - use of easier-to-share “rich media
  - needs to develop a ‘credit for on line publication;’ right
now there is limited or no incentives for authors.

Richard Rice founded academia.edu as a platform for
academics around the world to connect and share
research results.
Site has over a million monthly visitors and a thousand
academics enlist daily.
