Facebook for Scientists Launched

Posted by briony

Check it out, facebook for scientists: http://www.researchgate.net/

This site just launched today, and it looks like it could be a really sweet tool for “early career scientists” – if it catches on. You can make a profile for yourself, a research vitae with descriptions of current research projects, upload publications, connect with other researchers, and probably much more.

There are some hilarious facebook-ish aspects to this site, though: there’s a “relationship status” menu, and a “looking for” menu (no “anything i can get” option, sadly).

Anybody want to be my science friend? 😉
