Time for a quick update of the list of digital tools for researchers. A couple tools have been deleted, since they are no longer online. But many more are added. Enjoy!
Data management related tools in the broad sense of the term
- Dat Data – Open source, decentralized data tool for distributing datasets small and large.
- Riffyn – Cloud software for visual, collaborative, reproducible innovation.
- Castor EDC – User friendly and affordable online data collection for medical research.
- PCR Drive – Free platform that supports researchers in all their PCR-related processes.
- Ovation – Simplifies your scientific life from sample tracking for startup labs to data management.
- ELabJournal – GLP-compliant Electronic Lab Notebook and lab management tool.
A collaborative writing tool.
And a couple outreach platforms.
- Speakezee – Bringing speakers and audiences together.
- Science Simplified – A science communication portal aiming to aggregate all academic public releases and serve as a direct communication channel with the general public.
Looking at the digital science industry develop and mature over the past few years has been truly fascinating. There is tremendous excitement from entrepreneurs about the enormous transformative potential of translating new web technologies to the scientific research world. And there are also many frustrations and challenges that come with such major changes in the research and innovation ecosystems.
Although this website and others try to capture these changes and trends, my feeling is that there is yet a clear picture of what the digital science industry looks like. What type of organizations is this emerging community formed of? How well are they doing? How do its actors see the future? Is this even a community? And how can Connected Researchers and other alike can help?
With the help of LabWorm.com, I have created a short survey that aims to fill that gap. Better data about the digital science industry will help the entrepreneur get a better sense of this emerging world-community. It will also make it possible for funders and policy makers to better support the digital science industry. Feel free to fill it in if you define yourself as a scientific tool developer.
